Virtual reality is a technology that provides infinite space for humanity.
Currently, the reality of VR space has become quite high, however, in order for humans to be fully immersed in this space, the expression of their body is very important. In our laboratory, we are building Ultra Reality that involves virtual full-body sensation. If this is achieved, the user of the system can relive various valuable experiences of others becoming another person's body, and the direct transmission of excellent physical skill of experts will be possible. We wait for students who wish to pursue such a dream with us.
