Do you want to join us?

About the project: Below is a trial project that will familiarize you with a lot of what the research in the lab is based on.


Purpose of the project: It lets us see your ability and helps you get familiar with our research and systems.


What’s involved in the project:
1. Get familiar with Unity 3D, do a tutorial and build something of your choosing. You can find a number of example projects online.

2. Create an Autodesk Education account using your email address. After creating an account, go here, login, and create a character.

3. Export your character, and import it into Unity. You may need to install Maya which is free to download with your Autodesk Education account.
4. Create a scene (of your choosing) and make the character able to move around in the scene. The characters do not contain animations – you will need to create them yourself.
5. When you’re finished (2 weeks), please email Dr. Lok ( to set up an appointment to present your demo. Please look at the calendar on his webpage: to identify a time adjacent to another UF-based meeting.


Best of luck. We look forward to seeing your project!
