What is MAGICS?

Ever wondered what all you could do in virtual, augmented, and mixed reality? How to measure and observe how people respond and interact in virtual and naturalistic contexts? Is it possible to meet virtually, to see, hear, touch and smell, as if the other people were in the same space with you?

MAGICS is a joint effort of three major Finnish universities – Aalto University, University of the Arts Helsinki and Tampere University – to form a network of infrastructures to accelerate research into the virtualization of humans and their surroundings, specifically applied to immersive and naturalistic remote presence.
