Bringing the world home

The QUT Global Goggles app was developed for one of our Open Days. This app delivered famous icons from New York, Paris, London, Hong Kong and Rome into the heart of the Brisbane cityscape, to tangibly show that the world really is closer than prospective students think.

See how we kicked off the semester in style with an immersive 360° look at O-Week.

We drop you into the middle of the celebrations at our Gardens Point campus, in the heart of Brisbane. Experience QUT student life from a fresh perspective.

Remaking the reef

The Virtual Reef at QUT's The Cube provides an immersive, simulated underwater experience that invites users to engage and learn about the Great Barrier Reef's unique ecosystem.

Developed in collaboration with The Queensland Museum, the Virtual Reef is a life-sized marine ecosystem expanding across two levels of QUT's Science and Engineering Centre. Multi-touch technologies enable the user to manipulate, intimately explore, and interact with the specific behaviours and relationships of the reef and its inhabitants.

Raising animal awareness

The Many Eyes on the Wild program aims to help protect endangered animals and their environments by combining traditional conservation with VR, statistical modelling, and local and international expertise. We aim to facilitate improved decisions about management and monitoring, for the conservation of Jaguars in the Peruvian Amazon.

A collaboration between ACEMS Many Eyes on the Wild project team at QUT, Lupunaluz Foundation, and the ARC Centre of Excellence in Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers.

Performer's unique project

Step into the mind of an aspiring QUT student as he prepares for the performance of a lifetime. In this first episode of Journey to Ars, dance student Jacob Watton introduces himself and his unique project, which involves collaborating with a team of creatives and performing to a robotic camera.

Really into VR?

Interested in creating your own immersive VR content? Real-time 3D graphics now extend beyond games and into fields such as virtual production, interactive cinema, virtual reality and augmented reality. These applications offer interactive and immersive experiences way beyond watching static 3D graphics.

You can help shape an emerging industry through our creative industries, and science and engineering courses with units on virtual reality.

360⁰ at QUT

Take a spin around a few of our labs and see some of the equipment and workspaces we have available.

Autonomous systems lab

Led by Dr Matthew Dunbabin, known internationally for his interest into field robotics, particularly environmental robots, and their use in large-scale marine habitat monitoring, marine pest control and aquatic greenhouse gas mapping.

Biofabrication and tissue morphology lab

Biofabrication is poised to revolutionise the regenerative medicine industry. This laboratory space within the Science and Engineering Centre at Gardens Point is just one area used by the Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology Group in achieving ground-breaking research.

Visualisation lab

This visualisation, simulation and interaction research area houses a range of technology systems, including an interactive wall, multi-touch panels, motion capture, stereo projection and spatialised audio systems.

Manipulation lab with Baxter and Harvey

Two robots that interact with the world in the same complex way as humans. Baxter helps break down the boundaries preventing them from working side-by-side with humans. Harvey combines robotic vision and automation to develop a new agricultural prototype.

Analytics lab (P624)

This lab houses an array top-end equipment that covers the analytical spectrum of “What proteins are in my biological specimen?” to “How old is my rock sample?” to “How much greenhouse gas is in my air sample?

X-ray and particles lab

This lab at the Central Analytical Research Facility offers a range of X-ray-based methods and instrumentation. It supports QUT research and external researchers by analysing synthetic and natural materials.
