Currently under construction, this is the newest addition to the high-tech research infrastructure of the Ontario Tech simulation ecosystem. Funded by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) awarded to Dr. Adam Dubrowski, the lab has several 3D printers and scanners, including Ultimaker 5S, Stratesys F170 and a line of Markforged printers.
In addition, the lab has three different 3D scanners that can acquire data and digitize small objects as well as large spaces. Finally, the laboratory has a “wet” working area to create silicone-based materials.
The GaMER Lab is Ontario Tech’s state-of-the-art graduate student and experimental research space for games. There are four core research areas within the GaMER Lab:
Our researchers bring together interests in human-computer interaction, game science, gamification, interaction design, informatics, user experience (UX), serious games, virtual simulation, stereovision and robotics—all connected to each other in a common research space.
