An offshoot of the VR Statics Instruction project, this project is investigating how statics problems can be displayed, analyzed, and solved, all in VR and in collaboration with multiple students. The chief innovation is the incorporation of graphics tablets that simplify solving statics problems using traditional drawings and equations. The tablets are tracked in VR, and students can perform measurements of 3D problems instead of having measurements provided.
