Hybrid Design Technologies (HDT) is a new initiative through the Office of Information Technology at Ball State University, supporting the design and production of virtual, immersive and interactive environments - developing innovative immersive solutions for cultural heritage, museums, arts, teaching and learning.
Hybrid Design Technologies and the Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts engage artists, scholars, designers, educators, scientists, and technicians in the exploration of the intersections between the arts, science and technology. Scholarly, creative and pedagogical projects investigate virtual reality, human computer interface, visualization and 3D simulation. The lab develops projects in partnership with our international clients - investigating the forefront of discourse in emergent media design.
Hybrid Design Technologies builds upon the success of the Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts [IDIA Lab] developed through support by the Lilly Foundation, Inc. and leveraging the international recognition of IDIA in virtual reality, interactive interface, hybrid worlds, simulation and human computer interface.
Accomplishments of the IDIA have included:
The IDIA is has an active record of international dissemination including invitational speaking engagements, panels, festivals, museum exhibitions, commissions and papers – representing BSU as an innovator in virtual solutions in teaching, learning and design.
