CARISMA is a research and training center in the Department of Communication at Michigan State University, founded in 2016. CARISMA is dedicated to the study of human experience in Virtual and Augmented Realities (VR/AR).  

 

VR/AR are expected to fundamentally change the way we learn and work, play and communicate. Yet, the transformative impact of VR is still hard to foresee, and its potential benefits and risks for individuals and society are difficult to predict.

 

CARISMA contributes to fill this void. Taking a social science perspective, CARISMA aims to lay the scientific groundworks for an evidence-based, human-centered design of next generation information and communication technologies.
