EIBC Community BBQ Lunch and VR Demo
Fri. 21 October 2016, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm AEDT
Come join our EIBC family and friends at a BBQ Lunch. A gold coin donation is all it will cost to enjoy a sausage and networking designed to help you engage, collaborate and thrive.
PLUS bring your mobile phone and enjoy a Virtual Reality Headset Demo.
Trent and Daniel have a brilliant VR headset and they are coming in to allow yuo to road test them with your own mobile phone. Want one for yourself (or for a friend for Christmas)? They will also be selling the headset and controller for $40.
Here's some more information:
We will have 5 units set up with hand controllers so people can insert their own
Mobiles and after down loading any ups can experience VR for themselves.
Naturally if anyone wants to purchase any, we can sell them on the day for $40.

I have included my original email to you on VR below and additionally is that there is certainly a wide range of existing content online where much of it is actually available free.
Including some great immersive (360) videos from:
- Jaunt: https://www.jauntvr.com/
- 360Rize: http://video.360heros.com/
- Littlstar: https://littlstar.com/
- Discover VR: http://www.discoveryvr.com/
- YouTube (There is a growing range of 360 degree videos here): https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=360+video
- Google Play & Apple Store apps
Many of these can be woven into teaching classes, such as the Shipwreck and underwater shark experiences, space exploration, city flyovers, sporting and events etc.
Also note that the Google cardboard app and related content can also be viewed on these headsets as they implement the same VR viewing methods via a smartphone.
In terms of dedicated curriculum, Google has launched Google Expeditions (https://www.google.com.au/edu/expeditions/) where the VR learning and experience comes from the downloadable app. The full Google Expeditions kit is not required and at its foundations each student would have a headset and the teacher would facilitate the learning experience from e.g. a tablet, all connecting to a single access point (WiFi).
