Last week SenseVirtual demoed our latest Virtual Reality training and educational solutions at the Online and eLearning Conference.

The reaction was overwhelmingly positive and gives us the validation to see how far we can continue to push VR education and training in Africa. We also presented a talk at the conference which details how the rest of the world are successfully using VR for training and education. Feel free to contact us for further insights on this topic.

Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood and other South Florida hospitals are using the latest virtual reality technologies, to help kids have some fun before, during or after chemotherapy and other types of cancer treatments.

“They help me to get my mind off of all the things that are happening to me,” says Seth of the virtual reality experience, which immerses the 8-year-old in a 3D world where he can bowl, tour space or explore the human body.

Numerous studies published in The National Center for Biotechnology Information show that virtual experiences help reduce anxiety and distract pain in pediatric patients who undergo harrowing medical procedures like stem-cell transplantation, chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

Glenfiddich has launched a virtual reality whiskey tasting experience. The VR experience will see users transported to Glenfiddich’s Warehouse in Scotland. Users will be able to select a vat and enter the world of that expression, where they can write their own tasting notes in the air, with the brushes they write with creating a ribbon effect that matches the colours and aesthetic.

“VR is allowing us to interact with people in a whole new way, and the beautiful imagery for this project means that whiskey drinkers can express their tasting notes in a completely individual fashion, and in a completely new medium,” said Coralie Vial, Glenfiddich global brand manager.

Feel free to let us know if your business has any ideas on how to explore this exciting new technology of Virtual Reality.
