• Virtual Reality: The next leap to human learning

    VR tricks the human brain to make you think you're somewhere or someone else.

    Here are some of MindCET VR experiences

    Graviton

    Playground in Space

    Graviton enables teachers to easily explain physical laws to high school students. Graviton provides a collection of virtual reality mobile apps where the students feel present at computer generated environments, allowing them to realistically experience the effect of different physical laws. The required technology is easily accessible to facilitate scalability - a cardboard goggle that turns any smartphone into a VR device.

  • Create your own VR

    Want to create your VR experience using only your smartphone? Now it's possible

    Capture the world in 360 with your smartphone

    How to use your phone camera to create 360 images

    Google has actually two apps that enable you to capture VR images with your phone:

    • Cardboard Camera enables you to capture a scene very fast (and recording the sound while you're shooting), and even create the depth illusion for some objects. It gives you only a narrow field of view rather than a full 360 image.
    • With Google Street View app you can shoot Photo Spheres, watch them with your Cardboard, share them with friends via Google Photos, and even upload them to Google Maps. 

    Watch any 3D model in VR

    Dream it, Build it, Be inside it

    Sketchfab, the 3D model repository have a VR button on every model you watch. You can create any 3D model using whatever platform you prefer (I'll start with Tinkercad) and than you can take a VR tour in your own model.   

    Enrich VR scenes with buttons, animation and media

    Interact with your Photo Spheres

    Two great platforms to create VR scenes without any coding: Vizor and HoloBuilder. Both of them work in your browser, and both of them enable you to add buttons, animation, sound and video to your 360 photo sphere. And also the good old interactive image creator Thinglink are launching a beta for their VR Editor which look pretty cool.
