■Message from researcher
We need to change ourselves by media technology
 In the theme park, guest enjoys virtual world generated by state of the art VR technology. The movie "Matrix" drew that the hero experienced the virtual ordinary life in the world that is constructed by the computer nerve junction technology. I can say that media technology is able to free our curiosity from many physical limitations like the movie.
In the media experience design laboratory, we are targeting a variety of field such as medical care, nursing care, transportation, education, and games, and we has been investigating and developing service of the media, that is truly useful and solve real problems. We will go out in the field first, and observe the problem in society of fact and try to understand it. We will continue to study what we feel though media experience and what media is required to improve our real life.
