North Carolina State University – College of Design Mixed Reality Lab

The MXRlab vision is to push the boundaries of VR/AR technology into new opportunities for commercialization and wide adoptive use.  Current projects at NCSU College of Design and Mixed Reality Lab feature work with Character Creator by lab director, Derek Ham for the BARNSTORMERS VR baseball game that celebrates the history of the first Negro Baseball League players in an experience where you take the field.


Derek Ham, creator of Barnstormers with the Logic Grip Axe One for the Oculus controllers that connects them together for an alternative VR controller that has a solid two-handed stick like a baseball bat.   The Axe One is more than an aesthetic peripheral.  This patent pending design allows your controllers to lock in place giving you an on-axis grip  during game play.  North Carolina State’s MXR Lab utilizes Reallusion tools to produce VR content and projects for their program.

The Problems of Teaching 3D Animation

When creating unique 3D characters, digital sculpting is a new-age proficiency that every 3D artist has to tackle as it guarantees them the utmost freedom and control when it comes to ground-up character creation.

Traditionally, 3D institutes and seasoned 3D veterans have always used de facto tools like Maya, and 3ds Max as they are the go-to applications that can do everything from sculpting, skinning, texturing, rigging and animation. — But the biggest problem with these expensive applications, is the complexity of it all. The high difficulty level, the long hours of work, and a large amount of effort necessary to do the simplest animations are what deter most people from enjoying the art of 3D animation.

This is why 3D animation professors all around the world go through the same burden of having many animation students drop out after their first couple of semesters, as standard tools have simply too many user interfaces, with too many steps and technical methods that easily disenfranchise upcoming 3D artists.

Having fun Again – thanks to New Tools

Digital Media Arts College (DMAC) program manager Mike Centowski however, has found a way to help 3D animation students fall back in love with the art of 3D animation, by making it fun again.
