CHI 2021 Paper and Course

We are happy to announce our CHI 2021 paper on XRStudio, a virtual production and live streaming system allowing instructors to give lectures in VR, and enabling students to access the VR content with or without VR devices. This project involved several students from the lab: Shwetha Rajaram, Liwei Wu, and Jaylin Herskovitz, and a visiting student from Swarthmore College, Yifei Cheng. They co-presented the paper in this CHI video presentation. Michael and Shwetha will be at CHI to answer questions during the two presentation slots.

Together with Professor Mark Billinghurst, Michael also developed and co-taught a CHI 2021 course on XR prototyping. In preparation for the course, Mark and Michael have started to collect more resources for those interested in rapid prototyping techniques for XR, which can be found at

We are looking forward to catching up with friends at CHI 2021 which will be held virtually this year from May 8 to May 13.
