Hands-On Educational Learning through Application & Immersion
Virtual Reality focused towards all areas of the education sector. Our project consists of three demos in one, three classes: Chemistry, Astronomy, and Block Time. We as a team started with a vision of a virtual classroom, an environment where one can spend an endless amount of hours learning AND having fun. The tools we used to achieve the demo for our idea through fundamentally innovative technologies: The Oculus Rift, Leap Motion, and Unity.
Targeted Audience - High School Students
Our chemistry class consists of atoms and molecules. In your creative way, you combine these atoms and molecules to learn about bonding while having an overall interactive immersion into the world of chemistry.
Targeted Audience - Middle School Students
Astronomy, the class that we are most proud of, is a full immersion into the stars and heavens themselves, a close-up look at the planets and moons of our solar system. One can flip between planets, and even interact with some if desired.
Targeted Audience - Elementary School Students
Tired of your kids playing video games on the couch? Do your kids, or kids you know have too much energy to burn? This is the class for them. A century-long tradition of building blocks redesigned through the Oculus Rift, provides the ultimate flexibility and creativity to design the next watcha-ma-call-it.
Still in Development Stage
The Augmented reality portion of our demo is to show the possibility of overlaying the display for those that prefer an augmented view rather than full Immersion. The demo shows the camera overlay, due to the technical restrictions of Leap Motion, this is limited. But does show that it can be done.
