WorldViz Vizard & Virtual Humans 2014 (17x)


The Virtual Human Interaction Lab (VHIL) is a research lab at Stanford University that focuses on the study of human-computer interaction and the use of virtual reality and other technologies to create immersive virtual environments. The VHIL was founded in 2006 by Stanford professor Jeremy Bailenson, and has since become a leading center for research on the psychological and social effects of virtual reality and other immersive technologies.

The VHIL conducts a wide range of research on topics related to virtual reality, including the effects of embodiment, social presence, and other factors on human behavior. The lab also develops and uses various technologies, such as virtual reality headsets and motion capture systems, to create immersive virtual environments and study human behavior in these environments. The VHIL’s research has been published in a number of academic journals and presented at conferences, and has been widely cited in the media. The lab also provides a variety of resources, such as teaching materials and software toolkits, to researchers and educators who are interested in using virtual reality in their work.
