Capstone Project Opportunity 

Title: Mixed Reality Video Game for upper Body Rehabilitation
Co-supervisors: Katarina Grolinger (Software Engineering) and Ana Luisa Trejos (Mechatronics)
The group will develop a video game for upper body rehabilitation. The game will be developed in Unity for Microsoft Hololens 2 device. Hololens is a mixed reality device: virtual objects (holograms) are superimposed over the real world, so the user remains fully aware of the environment. The device user will interact with holograms to carry out rehabilitation tasks.
