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.
