Oculus Rift/Google Cardboard: The Rabbit Holes to the Future (Using Virtual Reality Tools to Enable Impactful Innovation)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard and other immersive 3D technologies are part of an emerging set of tools that are opening doors to a whole new educational, training and entertainment experience. Participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in 3D content with these technologies and begin to see the value of and understand how this applies to education, training and entertainment.           Participants will learn 1) about the various immersive technologies, 2) how to purchase the immersive technologies, 3) ideas on how to introduce the technologies into their community, 4) how to access free and pay-to-use developed 3D immersive technology to share with community members and 5) about the various options on creating your own 3D immersive experiences.  Participants can take this workshop home and use it!          Imagine taking a virtual walking tour of Paris gardens with Master Gardeners or the White House with 4-Hers without spending a dime in travel. Create and share 3D VR photos of the next county fair on your website. In the true Extension spirit, learn the basics, share the emerging technologies with your community and watch innovation take off. Be the vehicle that introduces opportunity for inspiration.
