UCI Applied Innovation

Monster VR developed an interactive, multiuser, virtual reality platform where visitors connect with UCI Applied Innovation. From any place on the globe, visitors will explore Applied Innovation’s research, technology and business centers, located both on- and off-campus. Visitors will gain an immersive vision into Applied Innovation’s past, present and future impact on entrepreneurship, engineering and technology.


Visitors roam the VR Gallery floor to explore Applied Innovation’s areas of interest ranging from UCI departments to nearby businesses. Each area of interest will host a virtual “showroom” where visitors may dive deeper into understanding the core technologies or research of a particular department or business. Visitors will learn by experiencing 360° video environments, interacting with collections of 3D artifacts, or even chatting with virtual hosts and faculty members.


Key audiences include corporate partners, entrepreneurs and prospective students. The VR Gallery's long term vision is to grow the experience with additional Applied Innovation businesses, research centers and frequent updates to existing content.
