Meetup #22 – Liminal VR
Date: Friday, December 8th, 2023
Time: 16:00 – 17:30 CET
For our last Meetup of the year, we have a particularly fun and interactive one. As a must, you’ll need to have a headset at the ready…
After meeting on MS Teams for a quick welcome and introduction, we’re going to simultaneously explore an app titled Liminal VR.
As the Melbourne based company behind the app describe themselves, “Liminal VR is a multi-award winning digital studio delivering emotionally moving augmented, mixed and virtual reality experiences in areas as diverse as training and simulation, sales and marketing, brand activations, education, research and development, corporate wellness and clinical applications”.
“With a world class creative and development team and dedicated research team of neuroscientists and psychologists, we pride ourselves on pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with immersive technologies”.
As we individually explore the many and varied experiences on the app, we will ask you all to consider how each might be used within an educational context, in what aspects they might perhaps be enhanced and altered, and in which ways they might prove a source of inspiration. After approximately 15 to 20 minutes, we will once again gather together on Teams to share our thoughts.
Within Liminal VR, much of the content is somewhat abstract, designed specifically to appeal to the emotions and there is much which we believe merits discussion.
Don’t forget to install the app on your headsets the day before we get started and we’re looking forward to seeing you soon!

Bridging the Gap Between Researcher and Developer When Developing Educational XR Applications | Recap Meetup #18
On December 17, 2022, we explored how researchers and developers work together on XR projects and how to approach an idea that can add value to an educational experience. Topics ranged from common pitfalls and how to avoid them to where to find funding. The meetup was hosted by and on the Media & Learning Association platform.
XR holds great potential for transforming education, offering novel and effective learning experiences, and is increasingly adopted by higher education institutions. There are, however, overlapping legal frameworks that apply when implementing XR, particularly data protection and intellectual property laws. Beyond legal obligations, ethical considerations are paramount.
WEART develops wearable haptic devices that enable a naturalistic and comfortable interaction with virtual objects, surfaces, and materials, allowing people to grasp, touch, feel, and manipulate content. By implementing rich haptic feedback — a combination of forces, vibrations, and thermal cues — the experience is brought to a high level of realism, which is deemed crucial to engagement and effective learning.
