Mixed Reality Showroom and Laboratory
The GERT Suit is frequently utilized both formally and informally in DHM courses; used to foster empathy and responsiveness in design innovation among young learners. The suit includes a variety of devices that simulate joint restriction, postural degeneration, diminished tactile sensation, imbalance, and vision impairments. The GERT suit allows the student to experience simulations in a physical space that command auditory, tactile, vision, mobility, and reach capabilities.
Eye Tracking Lab
In August 2016, the College of Human Sciences opened a new eye tracking lab with four Tobii T60 eye tracking workstations. The new eye tracking lab is able to collect large consumer samples measuring human computer interactions with video and images human computer interactions through non-invasive computer mounted devices. Eye tracking technology allows students and researchers to better understand how consumers evaluate visual communications. The technology is useful for integrating the voice of the end customer into visual designs of products, websites, advertisements, and other business communications. The eye tracking lab is used for teaching and research in diverse departments on campus including: Design, Housing and Merchandising, Agricultural Communications, Hotel and Restaurant Administration, and Graphic Design.
