Metaspace II

Metaspace II is a novel multiuser virtual reality system where a correspondence in scale, spatial layout, and object placement between the the real world and the virtual world is created for a room-sync experience. Through this association between the real and virtual world, users are able to walk freely while wearing a head-mounted device, avoid obstacles like walls and furniture, interact with each other and with objects just like they would in real life, bringing us closer to the realization of realistic collaborative virtual environ- ments. Preliminary deployment during our lab’s semi-annual open house shows that the system has potential to offer a high degree of presence in VR.
