Creative technology graduate’s virtual reality project selected for international conference in LA


Lionel Chok will showcase his MSc project at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Virtual Reality Conference 2017

Lionel Chok, an MSc Creative Technology graduate, has been selected by an expert panel to showcase his final MSc project at an international conference on virtual reality in Los Angeles in the USA from 18-22 March.

The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Virtual Reality Conference aims to find the brightest minds, innovative research, and stimulating discussions on virtual reality, augmented reality, and 3D user interfaces.

Bringing together academics, researchers, industry experts and VR enthusiasts, the conference  includes a host of workshops, research demos and seminars.

The live action video allows viewers to gain new perspectives of Singapore and its creative landscape by showcasing a collection of multi-sensorial experiences designed by the country’s top creative talents.

“I wanted people who were unable to attend to see the exhibition up close,” Lionel explains.

“I used a 360-degree camera provided by the University to capture the exhibition and, once processed, I built an interactive mobile app allowing users to explore different areas within the exhibition.”

Since beginning his masters degree at Middlesex University, Lionel has become inspired to pursue a career in technology and has recently set up his own specialised VR business.
