New VR Technology Educates the Public
Virtual Reality has rapidly grown in popularity since its introduction in gaming consoles. But with recent developments, the technology is now being used for educational purposes through simulations. In wake of the recent Sydney Bushfires, new Virtual Reality technology has been developed to simulate a bushfire scenario. The technology aims to emulate a pressure situation, where individuals can learn how to react in an emergency situation. How does this affect the development of virtual reality technology moving forward? we had Associate Professor John McGhee, director of the 3D Visualisation Aesthetics Lab at University New South Wales to talk with us about this today.
