Year 4 were lucky enough to receive a visit from Vorteka Virtual Realities. The children had the chance to explore the world of virtual reality through the Oculus Rift headset. Phil (the VR guru) explained to the children how the headset worked, how their movements were detected, how the sensors knew their exact position in the room and how all of this processing happened at great speed (over 90 times a second). The children were then given the opportunity to sample the virtual world. From standing on top of a New York skyscraper to being chased through an old building by a T-Rex, it was certainly an afternoon that Year 4 won’t forget in a hurry!
We would like to say a huge SJB ‘THANK YOU’ to Phil from Vorteka for giving up his time and coming in to visit us!
