Ikei Laboratory---Virtual Environments Lab. at Tokyo Metropolitan University

Welcome to IKEI Lab. web page!

The Virtual Environments Laboratory

The Virtual Environments Laboratory started its research activity on the advanced human interface technology in 1992 at Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Technology, the former organization of Tokyo Metropolitan University that was established 2005 by the merger of four organizations for education under Tokyo Metropolitan Government. The VE lab has performed researches in the field of human interface for more than fifteen years specifically on the haptic virtual reality and advanced information interfaces.
The lab is located at Building-2, Room 705 in Hino Campus that is dedicated to the Faculty of System Design.
