The first one is about virtual reality environments. Note how the user interacts with the environment.
Virtual reality is entering a new era of touch-sensitive tiles and immersive animations. Researchers in Barcelona have created a unique space at the cutting edge of digital immersion.The second is about the restoration of stained glass. The interesting part for me was to consider how the designers came up with the user interfaces that the restorers are using on what seems to be a generic windows box.
We can work with this microscope with a very high resolution, so that we can observe the very small structures. This is important to visualise the fine cracks of the glass. You can see it here, in this image: Here you can recognise the cracks that we are interested in. And the newly developed consolidation material will fill these cracks.The third is about research on building energy efficient cities. In this segment, one can see that the researchers/users are dependent on physical models of reality to envision larger scale activity. How might their work be translated into user interfaces that residents of these new cityscapes might use to make their buildings work better?
Developing truly energy efficient city buildings also requires input from the people living and working in them
