Abstract

The field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is undergoing a significant change as a result of the introduction of affordable Augmented and Virtual Reality devices. The NASA Kennedy Space Center Augmented/Virtual Reality Lab is dedicated to “… exploration into the growing computer fields of Extended Reality and the Natural User Interface… a proving ground for new technologies that can be integrated into future NASA projects and programs.” Traditional computer I/O devices are being replaced by head mounted displays, motion tracking devices, and facial and voice recognition systems, creating the next wave of the computer revolution. It is the task of today’s educators to learn how to use these new technologies and incorporate them into the classroom environment of today to give students the tools they will need to succeed in the future.
