UVR Lab. was formed in Feb. 2001 at GIST to study and develop Virtual Reality in Smart computing environments that process multimodal input, perceive user intention and emotion, and respond to user request through Augmented Reality. Since 2012, UVR Lab moved to KAIST GSCT and restarted with a theme of UN in Ubiquitous VR
