The University has procured a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) facility as a major research infrastructure or central research facility to promote individual and collaborative research on transdisciplinary neuroscience studies.
HKBU Motion Capture and Visualization Laboratory aims to be a comprehensive base for multi-person motion capture and analysis, an experimental and demonstrative space for AR/VR/XR research and applications, and an exploratory space for cognitive-driven generative creativity.
The Hong Kong Baptist University Visualization Research Centre (VRC) is a pioneering transdisciplinary initiative at the intersection of immersive interactive visualisation, aesthetics, culture and computer science. It promotes multisensory engagement using experimental platforms conjoining art and technology, and its innovative post-cinema frameworks provide an expanded set of creative affordances for all forms of cultural expression.
