A NETWORK TO FIND RESOURCES AND A COMPASS TO NAVIGATE OXFORD’S VAST PORTFOLIO

Oxford X-Reality Hub

Our Mission

The Oxford X-Reality (OXR) Hub harnesses immersive technologies to tackle some of humanity’s greatest challenges: educational inequalities, big data, manufacturing optimisation and heritage preservation. The team comprises engineers, technological experts and humanists whose research is diverse and interdisciplinary.

Using a bottom-up approach, we aim to build lasting relationships while being research focused.

PRODUCTIVITY

The Oxford X-Reality Hub developed the infrastructure to support the use of immersive technology at the University of Oxford, particularly to increase research outputs, innovation and productivity. Our approach also removes cost barriers and the procurement time of equipment.

INNOVATION

Our team facilitates the development of transformative ideas that leverage immersive technologies. There is no disciplinary limit or constraint on the types of technologies that can be employed.

RESEARCH

We have supported research teams from all divisions: Medical (WIMM Institute), Mathematical, Physical & Life Sciences Division (Computer Science, Psychology, Chemistry, Physics), Social Science (Anthropology and Geography), the Humanities Division (TORCH) and GLAM.

Our Impact

The X-Reality Hub has developed strategic partnerships with a number of commercial companies. In collaboration with DELL, AMD and HTC Vive, the Oxford X-Reality Hub built an ecosystem capable of supporting researchers without upfront investment.
