SMI Reseacher Helps Bring Hyperbolic Space to Virutal Reality

Soft Matter Incubator (SMI) researcher Prof. Elisabetta Matsumoto is part of a team of researchers that is helping bring hyperbolic space to anyone with a virtual reality (VR) headset. The effort is designed to allow users to experience non-Euclidean spaces in which parallel lines diverge (hyperbolic space) that can be difficult to fully imagine with purely mathematical considerations. The research was recently part of the News in Focus in Nature.
