|At SenseVirtual we continue to explore areas where Virtual Reality experiences will have the most impact in Africa.
In the world of education, SenseVirtual is currently completing a high-end Virtual Reality museum experience which will be released on all VR platforms. We have found that using Virtual Reality to immerse users into historical scenarios and enabling them to interact with historic artefacts makes for an incredible learning experience.
Another area we have seen a great need for VR is in the area of training. We have found Virtual Reality gives companies the ultimate training tool. One key strength of using VR is the high levels of knowledge retention achieved by this medium. This is due to the level of interaction and immersion achieved inside a VR training experience.
We will continue to document the results we achieve in these various industries as we continue exploring the power of this new medium.
