ICTP 132: Virtual and augmented reality, and key opportunities for the Caribbean, with 4th Dymension
Manage episode 277917245 series 2273704
It is widely held that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) have the potential to transform how we interact with, and view, things around us, whilst also opening us up to a broad range of new and different experiences. However, it could be argued that we, in the Caribbean, have not yet begun to leverage those opportunities.
Software development firm, 4th Dymension, has created a VR experience of Plymouth, Montserrat, before the volcanic eruption that forced the abandonment of the capital city. We learn more about that project, and discuss the ways in which the Caribbean region could leverage VR and AR, as well as whether a VR or AR-based venture can be financially viable.
