This technology reminded me of the attempts of the past. To propel you into a virtual world with dinosaurs and the like with the Viewmaster.

Like the viewmaster you enter a 3D world through each eye having its own view and being surrounded to your peripheral vision. . Using Google cardboard, the modern addition has sound through headphones and the sensory components of the iPhone allowing movement through the environment.

This is an amazing educational tool for:

  • Virtual Training,
  • experiences in  places like museums and far away cities
  • Sense of empathy eg. A disaster zone or a refugee camp.
