Having very much enjoyed this same event last year, myself and some fellow Cyberpsychology students will be road tripping it down to Limerick again for the barcamp unconference 3Dcamp “the internet beyond the 2D browser”. This event is taking place on Saturday the 6th of June and you can register to attend and/or present here. One of the most interesting components of the M.Sc. Cyberpsychology course is the study of the psychological effects of virtual environments, hence our interest. However, 3Dcamp also covers a variety of other technologies and has a wonderful ability to showcase current research and development.
