VR for Good

16 May 14:00-17:00 at hedgehog lab, Generator Studios, Trafalgar St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 2LA

We take a look at how VR is being used by charities and aid organisations throughout the world. Virtual reality enables stories to be told in the most emotive and immersive way possible, placing the user in the very epicentre of events as they unfold.

The format of the workshop will be short presentation followed by a lengthy hands on session with access to try various VR hardware including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung GearVR and Google Daydream headsets.
