Virtual Reality Education – Training / Workshops
Learn to paint, design and concept in VR using all three dimensions.
As a child, did you ever play with a sparkler creating light paintings with your hands? With Google Tiltbrush this is effect can be a reality.
Using a VR setup that tracks the movement of your hands and head, Sean can create 3D environments and training diagrams that look like impressionist versions of a real-world place or scene.
Virtual Reality is able to transport you into a virtual world that your brain completely buys.
It’s different to hearing a story, watching a movie, and even playing a video game. You can see images and hear audio as if you’re there. Each eye sees a different image so you get depth perception. You can interact with the computer in 3D space as if you’re in the space yourself, all with the freedom to move. You really need to experience it to understand, it’s just like how nobody can describe how a rollercoaster feels

Advantages of sketching/planning in Virtual Reality
Job training can be expensive, cumbersome, and even dangerous to arrange in a real-life setting. For example, it’s hard to train firefighters. It gets very expensive to light things on fire. But visualising the danger is more effective.
VR offers the same ability for firefighters, and other emergency service responders, to train and experience the environment they’ll be working in without physical risk or expense.
Training with VR empowers can empower users to:
- Scale up or down elements.
- Perceive the shape, texture and how a model or product might look in lifelike lighting vs. on a screen with no context.
- Have the ability to plan out ads, films and plays without the cost of physical equipment, make mistakes that don’t cost anything, and plan difficult shots without the risk of danger
- Change and mark-up artwork in real time
Example: Change colours of 3D models instantly without rendering or move the position of a model by grabbing it with your hands.
