Publication: Kilo Hōkū—Experiencing Hawaiian, Non-Instrument Open Ocean Navigation through Virtual Reality

The Kilo Hōkū team is proud to announce our first publication, now available in MIT’s journal PRESENCE: Teleoperators and Virtual Environments.  Titled “Kilo Hōkū—Experiencing Hawaiian, Non-Instrument Open Ocean Navigation through Virtual Reality” (doi:10.1162/PRES_a_00301), it is a presentation of our first steps in developing and prototyping the Kilo Hōkū simulation, the history of native Hawaiian Wayfinding, and our work to build a tool that will help to instruct future wayfinders and the public while preserving the cultural heritage of the Hōkūleʻa.
