Augmented and Virtual Reality

I received a 2021-2022 Grant from DELTA (Digital Education and Learning Technology Applications) at NC State to explore extended reality applications in the field of textiles. The goal is to create a platform to communicate the tangible nature of fabric in a virtual space with real-time cloth simulation and educational assets.

Some questions I'm currently exploring:

  • How do textile engineers and designers interact with fabric in person? How can we replicate that interaction in a virtual space?

  • What is the digital future of a physical swatch book?

  • How can virtual reality inform the e-textile design process?
