About Spatial Computing

With the advent of Precision Medicine, healthcare is becoming increasingly data-intensive involving integrating massive amounts of information generated from genome sequencing, heart rate, clinical information, etc. Yet, there are no comprehensive tools that allow for medical data visualization of such highly complex information.  To this end, the Englander Institute for Precision Medicine developed three applications: HoloGraph, Oculome and DropSeq that allow for 3D immersive data visualization in remote collaborative environments using virtual (Oculus Rift) and mixed reality (Microsoft HoloLens). These applications are easy to use and render the ability to visualize and manipulate complex multi-dimensional structures, cancer mutations on protein structures, and even allow collaborators from remote locations to participate in data analysis in real time.

Projects

Virtual Reality

Virtual reality (VR), which can be referred to as immersive multimedia or computer-simulated reality, replicates an environment that simulates a physical presence in places in the real world or an imagined world, allowing the user to interact in that world. Examples of our devices are the Oculus Rift and the Cave.

Mixed Reality

Mixed reality (MR)—sometimes referred to as hybrid reality—is the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualisations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.
