Associate Professor Koh Koon Teck, Head of PESS was featured on Media Corp Channel 8 News tonight's weekly technological report on  Sunday, 18 March 2018.

He gave his expert comments about amplified or Augmented Reality (AR) games that combine with physical activity or sports. He observed that at this time, there’s no substantial evidence that shows AR would help boost a user’s physical fitness level or strength.
