Carolina AR/VR (CARVR)
Carolina AR/VR (abbreviated as CARVR) is UNC-Chapel Hill’s XR student organization, promoting student exploration and development of extended reality technologies. Extended reality includes virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and any other hardware that simulates reality (e.g. haptics technology).
Within CARVR, students explore various XR technologies, gain conceptual understanding of the development pipeline, and learn XR development to create projects for real-world applications with personal and client use.
All students – undergraduate or graduate, in any field of study – are encouraged to join!

ARt Walk on Franklin
ARt Walk on Franklin is a cutting-edge augmented reality application that was created to highlight local art and generate more foot traffic for downtown businesses in Chapel Hill.
The application was developed in Summer 2020 by Carolina AR/VR and UNC Summer of Code. A selected team of six students spent six rigorous weeks building, testing, debugging, and polishing this web-based virtual reality application which allows passerby to access and interact with a piece of art via a marker logo. The application also included a GEO guidance system that shows users where to find a given piece of artwork.
