Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Contest 2022/23

The fifth Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Contest is now open for applications! The VR/AR Contest is an annual competition organised by the Library for students from different disciplines to explore the possibilities offered by emerging technologies. This year, the contest encourages participants to use their creativity to apply the VR/AR technologies in the PolyU context.

Through our dedicated series of workshops and seminars, you will learn the tools and resources to embark on VR/AR game or application development. At the beginner level, you will acquire the essential skills in creating basic 3D modelling, and next, you will learn about programming with the VR/AR development platform at the advanced level. More details of the related workshops or seminars will be available soon. Stay tuned!
