UX & VR
In the project week with our teams from UX and R&D Software Development the Hackathon focused on Virtual Reality. The groups were given various challenges on how to integrate VR into the healthcare environment. From creating a lab area dominated by zombies, to setting up a 3D dashboard virtually, which could be “touched”, the students could bring in their creativity. “The results I received were of course not "production ready", but every team had great ideas worth looking into.”, concluded Bernhard from UX. Also Roman, SW department leader, was happy with the result of the students for his challenge of “Augmented instrument information” and sees great potential to use the approach for simulation purposes and also further development.
