The PIxL Lab works at the intersection of games, human-computer interaction, and mixed reality, developing game experiences that educate and function as scientific experiments in HCI. Beyond development workstations, it includes a custom wearable computing platform that connects sensors, a head-mounted display, and a hand-held display to enable players to enjoy mixed reality experiences away from the desktop.
