Triality is a cooperative mixed-reality experience presented as the result of a collaboration between students of the Interface Cultures Master Program (University of Art and Design Linz) and the Master Program Software Engineering and Human-Centered Computing (University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Hagenberg).

In a mysterious laboratory, three participants have to synchronize to solve pending tasks. Each player perceives only one sense of the same virtual character and controls it: touch, hearing and sight. To solve the problems, the players must work together as one unit to gain a complete understanding of what is happening in the virtual world.

Triality is an unconventional exploration of VR technologies that challenges the limits of our perception.

Over the past year students from the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria / Campus Hagenberg and the University of Art and Design Linz collaborated to conceive, design and built TRIALITY. Over several planning sessions, Hackathons and online discussions this novel mixed reality experiment came into being. All with the support and guidance of Christoph Anthes and Tamiko Thiel.
