We have awarded Ana Monte travel funds to AES, where she will be speaking on the panel Immersive and Spatial Audio: The Stanford Virtual Heart. Pediatric cardiologists at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford are using immersive virtual reality technology to explain complex congenital heart defects, which are some of the most difficult medical conditions to teach and understand. The Stanford Virtual Heart experience helps families understand their child’s heart conditions. For medical trainees, it provides an immersive and engaging new way to learn about the most common and complex congenital heart anomalies. The panelists will give an insight about the challenges for the sound design with a scientific approach and how it was integrated in Unity. http://www.aes.org/events/145/spatialaudio/?ID=6307
