Virtual Reality (VR) is on the cusp of moving from the expensive hobbies of gamer developers and risk-taking institutions, and moving into the first mainstream wave of VR for public exhibitions, virtual tourism, education and entertainment.
The technology behind this ranges from casual Google Cardboard-like quick experiences, through photo-realistic experiences with the Oculus Rift, and Playstation VR, and even full body immersive experiences that you can physically walk around in with HTC Vive.
I am an active developer for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Google Cardboard VR experiences, and am currently working on VR prototypes for projects that I’m looking forward to being able to announce soon!
This very simple example demonstrates a mobile VR app I wrote to let people look around Australia’s Parliament House in Canberra.
Load the app, pop it into a mobile VR headset (e.g. Google Cardboard) and enjoy the view!
Or, this could be part of a permanent installation in a tourist visitor centre.
If you think this looks interesting and want to know how it could work for you in tourism, education, travel for immobile people, and so many other creative uses of VR technology, then please contact me: Ricky Vuckovic 0415 148 098 firstname.lastname@example.org
