Virtual Reality Capturing Children’s Minds
Recently we built a I built a really powerful Virtual Reality capable computer. And i rely enjoyed the project and fort i would see how my youngest sun would enjoy it. Its safe to say he loves it. He has been playing a 3D passel game giving little animals water and asking “is it real” and “can you see it two”. The thing the struck me the most was how immersed he actually became in the Virtual wold. At one point he was playing with a virtual dog and frigged out he could throw sticks he got a little to existed and ran after the dog start into the wall.
But best of all was letting him have sum free play and putting on the headset to see he was trying to make a 3d person without me telling him to or showing him how to do it.
I can relay see it being the future of education before long he was fingering out how to solve the puzzles and even how to mix colours together. If there where more educational games or apps for his age range i would have him on it all the time. I cannot wait to see how VR evolves hopefully one day it will bringing us to the Star Trek hole deck
Have a look for your self what he was up to he is using a HTC VIVE headset and controllers
