Physics Education with Mixed Reality (HoloLens)

The Society for Information on Educational Systems held a symposium. Mr. Kato, Dr. Narumi and I spoke on "The Future of Education Opened Up by XR".

Dear readers,

Ah, the relief of cooler days finally gracing us! I trust you're faring well during this brief respite from the heat?

From August 29 to 31, the esteemed Research Conference of the Society for Information and Systems in Education convened at Kinki University's Higashi-Osaka Campus. This gathering serves as a pivotal forum for delving into information systems that bolster education and learning, drawing scholars from diverse fields united by the common thread of information.

The conference's highlight was a riveting panel discussion titled "The Value of New Teaching and Learning with XR and its Dissemination," which saw an impressive turnout of around 200 attendees, both in-person and online.

Guiding the discussions was Dr. Kojiri, Chair of the Research Conference Organizing Committee, alongside distinguished panelists including Mr. Naoto Kato, CEO of Cluster Corporation, and Dr. Takushi Narumi from the Cyber Interface Laboratory at the University of Tokyo.

Mr. Kato's journey from founding Cluster, a VR technology startup, to being recognized as one of Forbes Japan's "30 Under 30 Changing the World," is truly inspiring. Likewise, Dr. Narumi's groundbreaking work in virtual reality and augmented reality interfaces, coupled with his accolades including the Young Scientist Award, left a profound impression on all.

Their insights into the immersive potential of virtual worlds and the complexities of self-image control struck a chord, particularly among our younger audience members. As a parent and educator, witnessing the impact of these discussions on our youth reinforced the importance of fostering a balanced perspective on reality.

Indeed, the symposium left me pondering the essence of "reality" and our relationship with it. My heartfelt gratitude goes out to Dr. Kojiri and the entire team for orchestrating such an enlightening event.

Till we meet again,

Report on the "XR Talk vol. 8" . Thank you for your valuable feedback.

Hey folks!

Let's rewind to October 10, 2023, when the vibrant halls of LODGE, nestled within LINE Yahoo's headquarters building, played host to "XR Talk vol. 8." It was an electrifying community event dedicated to unraveling the latest trends and hands-on experiences in XR.

At our booth, we showcased "HoloThrow" once again, following its debut in September, alongside "HoloAir" from our July showcase. Two groundbreaking products, one immersive experience!

"HoloThrow" is a VR-based physics learning application tailored to demystify high school mechanics. Concepts like trigonometric functions and vector decomposition, often daunting in traditional classrooms, come to life with intuitive understanding through this app.

The feedback poured in, and we were thrilled by the positive response:

  • "Fun to learn and easy to visualize."
  • "The blend of physics explanation and VR content was captivating."
  • "It was intriguing to intertwine physics explanation with VR content."
  • "Great for grasping the intricacies of laws sensitively."

A heartfelt thank you to Yahoo Ichikawa and Zozo Morohoshi for graciously hosting us, and to all who immersed themselves in our exhibits. We're committed to refining our offerings, striving for excellence with each iteration.

Stay tuned for more immersive experiences and exciting innovations on the horizon!

Warm regards,

Exhibited "Magnetic Field Visualization App" at the community event "HoloLens Meetup" and received very positive feedback.

Hey there, tech enthusiasts!

On October 23, 2023, the seminar room of Microsoft Japan Co. buzzed with excitement as the "HoloLens Meetup" event unfolded.

The "HoloLens Meetup" serves as a platform for tech aficionados to dive into the world of Mixed Reality using HoloLens—an innovative pair of glasses that unlocks immersive experiences. While HoloLens was the pioneer, similar hardware is now burgeoning, opening new avenues for exploration.

At our booth, we showcased the wonders of "visualization of magnetic fields," bringing the invisible to life right before our visitors' eyes.

Here's a glimpse of the feedback we received:

  • "The phenomena were easy to visualize and understand."
  • "Intuitive and easy to grasp."
  • "Fascinating to witness the invisible come to life."
  • "I appreciated learning through real data, not just abstract concepts."

Many were particularly awestruck by the correlation between the magnetic fields generated by the two bar magnets.

The "Visualization of Magnetic Fields" exhibit captivated attendees and garnered enthusiastic acclaim. We're thrilled to continue sharing cutting-edge technologies and insights through presentations at such dynamic events.

Stay tuned for more exciting adventures in the world of Mixed Reality!

Warm regards,

Report on the "XR Talk vol. 9" . Thank you for your valuable feedback.

Hey everyone!

Brr, it's suddenly getting chilly out there! On the cozy evening of November 14, we gathered at LODGE, a vibrant social space nestled within LINE Yahoo!, for the much-anticipated "XR Talk vol. 9." It was an exhilarating community event designed to unravel the latest buzz and hands-on experiences in XR.

Kicking off promptly at 7:00, the talk session buzzed with excitement as we delved into various news snippets. A special guest took the stage, captivating us with insights into "Immersive Experiences." Picture this: screens sprawled across a vast expanse, weaving a mesmerizing tapestry of content. Truly, it was a glimpse into the future of immersive storytelling.

As the evening unfolded, our hands-on exhibit stole the spotlight, drawing rave reviews from attendees. What struck a chord most profoundly was the appreciation for visual learning. Many found the incorporation of visuals—a boon for grasping intricate subjects like physics—utterly fascinating. The ability to render invisible concepts tangible resonated deeply, especially in educational contexts. Three-dimensional visualization, they noted, breathed life into abstract notions, fostering experiential learning.

Such glowing feedback fuels our passion and validates our trajectory. It's a beacon of encouragement guiding our future endeavors. We're committed to leveraging these insights to enrich educational landscapes and unearth new horizons.

A heartfelt thank you to LINE Yahoo Ichikawa and Zozo Morohoshi for graciously hosting us, and to each and every one of you who embarked on this immersive journey with us.

Until next time, keep exploring!

What is the XR Experience Exhibition Event? Physics Teachers propose from the forefront of technology.

Hey there, fellow educators!

Can you believe we're just three weeks away from wrapping up this year? How's everyone holding up amidst all the hustle and bustle?

So, yesterday, we had the pleasure of participating in the XR hands-on exhibition event. Now, you might be wondering, what exactly is that? Especially for us teachers, it might sound like a whole new world. Typically, I breeze past these explanations, but let's dive into it this time.

Participation in Volunteer Cleanup of Shopping Streets and Philosophy of Trash Pickup from Shohei Otani's Words.

The recent drop in temperature has made gloves a necessity. In the brisk mornings, I volunteered to tidy up Koen-dori Shopping Street in Kichijoji Honmachi. Despite the street's usual hustle and bustle, a dedicated effort behind the scenes ensures its beauty remains preserved.

Though the street is relatively quiet, there's a palpable sense of unity as personnel from various businesses within the shopping district converge to clean up together. Armed with tongs, we diligently clear trash from JR to Itsukaichi Kaido, tidying the roadsides as we go.

During this endeavor, I conversed with Mr. Himeno, president of Management Brain, and a community-involved small business consultant. Our discussion delved into the history of the shopping district, Kichijoji, and the activities of the Chamber of Commerce and the Federation of Shopping Centers. One remark from Shohei Otani resonated deeply: "Picking up trash is picking up the luck that people have dropped."

Our company values diverse connections, extending from local beautification to supporting initiatives in Africa. We remain committed to active engagement in the Kichijoji shopping district, striving to maintain its cleanliness and vibrancy.
