Workshop for the Research and Applications of virtual reality and Metaverse

Ir. Dr. YM Tang and his research team (RIVRT) hosted a workshop on March 9, 2023, for academic staff and doctorate students from the City University of Macau, focused on the research and applications of virtual reality and Metaverse.

The workshop featured a range of engaging presentations and interactive sessions designed to showcase the latest advances in virtual reality technology and explore the potential applications of the Metaverse in various fields.

Attendees had the opportunity to engage with experts in the field, including Ir. Dr. YM Tang, and gained valuable insights into the development and applications of virtual reality and Metaverse technologies.

Development and Application of Metaverse – RTHK Interview


On March 9, 2023, Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) interviewed Ir. Dr. YM Tang, a renowned expert in virtual reality and immersive technology, to discuss the development and applications of Metaverse.

During the interview, Ir. Dr. Tang shared his insights on the potential of the Metaverse and its impact on various industries, including entertainment, e-commerce, and education. He highlighted the importance of collaboration among different sectors to fully realize the potential of the Metaverse and create engaging and immersive experiences for users.

Ir. Dr. Tang also discussed another important factor in Metaverse development is the growth of online communities and social networks. As more people spend time online and engage with each other through social media and other digital platforms, the demand for richer, more engaging virtual experiences is increasing.

Applications of the Metaverse are already beginning to emerge in a variety of fields. One of the most promising areas of application is in the entertainment industry. Virtual reality concerts, games, and other experiences are already gaining popularity, and as the Metaverse continues to evolve, we can expect to see even more immersive and engaging entertainment experiences.

In the education and training sector, the Metaverse has the potential to transform the way we teach and learn. Virtual reality simulations and interactive environments can provide hands-on learning experiences that are not possible in traditional classroom settings.

The interview with Ir. Dr. Tang provides a valuable perspective on the current state and future prospects of the Metaverse, and highlights the growing interest in this technology among the media and general public. As the Metaverse continues to evolve and mature, it is likely to have a profound impact on the way we interact with the digital world, and on the way we live, work, and play.

When Simulation Embraces Virtual Reality (VR): Examples of Using VR in Medical Simulation Training

Abstract Summary

At the beginning of the presentation, we will discuss the current virtual reality (VR) technology in clinical and biomedical applications. We will demonstrate an example of using VR in medical simulation for type and screen training, which determines both the ABO-Rh of the patient and screens for the presence of the most commonly found unexpected antibodies. It involves a simple draw and a laboratory test of a blood sample. There is a series of steps involving type and screen procedures. However, some medical staff members may overlook certain steps or conduct some steps unsuccessfully, as many of these staff are overloaded and work under high pressure. Therefore, we have developed an integrative solution to provide blood-taking training for medical staff members in a hospital by using the latest VR technology. In the VR training program, medical staff members can navigate and interact without distractions in a safe and calm environment, which is difficult to find in the real world. The VR training program not only provides opportunities for additional medical staff members to practice repeatedly, but also eliminates training time and costs compared with traditional training methods. The project outcome is expected to provide an interesting and effective training to thousands of medical staff members who require training in type and screen in Hong Kong. After the demonstration, we will also introduce the latest developments in mixed reality (MR) and the future development of extended reality (xR). We will explore how the development of artificial intelligence (AI) technology can be integrated with VR in order to extend its application in the biomedical and clinical areas.
