Do you still dig through mountains of source code when you want to understand software? What if you could walk through it like a city instead? Maybe you meet one of your colleagues there. He’s actually sitting in an office 1000 km away from you, and he can tell you a little bit about the area of software that seems like a mystery to you right now. Researchers around the world are working on this vision. Virtual reality hardware is now affordable and increasingly suitable for everyday use.
This presentation by Prof. Dr. Rainer Koschke will give you an insight into the current state of research on how to make software visible and tangible by means of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). It will be shown what research is currently working on in this field and what forms of visualization and interaction you can expect in the near future thanks to new technologies such as 3D glasses, power walls and advanced sensors (data glove, gesture recognition, biosensors, and many more) to make software more visible and tangible.
