About Virtual Reality lab
Please note: due to Covid-19, some of the locations may currently have safety measures in place, and be subject to reduced hours and capacity. Find out about changes on campus on our dedicated Covid-19 webpages.
Goldsmiths’ virtual reality lab enables students to create, inhabit, and explore their own virtual worlds. The space is equipped with a full multi-camera motion capture studio, similar to that used in the making of Avatar, Avengers, and The Last of Us. This system allows you to capture live-action performances, and translate them into perfect animated replicas to be used later in your animation, creative computing, or games programming projects. The equipment is also capable of doing this in real-time, so as you act out your scene, your VR avatar copies you on screen.
The lab, which is in the Ben Pimlott Building, is also equipped with an 8.1 Ambisonic surround sound system, sound recording/mixing equipment, and custom Oculus rifts and LEAP Motions, which allow you to interact with whatever virtual objects and world you create.
