PublicVR is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to research in Virtual Reality for Education and providing free software for educational virtual worlds. Our human computer interaction research centers on large scale projection based displays, interactive educational theater, and mixed reality environments.
We develop and distribute virtual worlds, public performances, museum exhibitions, and open-source software for low-cost applications in virtual and augmented reality. We document and distribute our work through the website, publications, and demonstrations. With each project, we release some or all of the intellectual property produced to the public domain, free for non-commercial and educational purposes. Most importantly, we conduct basic and applied research on learning with interactive and immersive technologies.
