Buffalo Seminary VR/360

Buffalo Seminary hosts an open house tonight to introduce potential students to a “tradition of forward thinking” education.

They will also be unveiling their new VR/360 student marketing campaign entitled, “Day In the Life,” produced by Crosswater.

The project took a year in the making, capturing all the special events and experiences that are part of the daily life at the private all-girls school.

Buffalo Seminary is no stranger to forward thinking. In addition to the immersive marketing video, they have partnered with Crosswater on the development of a VR/AI language learning experience for their students.

Nancy Fernandez, Crosswater’s Director of Immersive Education, said “We need more women in the tech sector for representational purposes, cutting out some unintended bias and breaking the age old stereotype that tech is a man’s job. It’s (the VR/AI lab) a pipeline from high school to high tech.”

#endPoverty

Today is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
“The best anti-poverty program is a world-class education.” former President Obama remarked in a State of the Union speech.

Here at Crosswater, we firmly agree with that statement, which is why we are dedicated to creating quality educational VR/360 content to inspire students of all socio-economic backgrounds. Our intent is to spark the imagination in young minds with immersive content that has greater retention value and enables them to absorb and understand more of what is achievable. We invite you to share your thoughts on how we can collectively work together to make education fun, and accessible to everyone, and contribute to the eradication of poverty worldwide.

VR EDUCATION

While consumer adoption of VR/360 technology has been a bit slower than expected by industry experts, there is one use that continues to see steady growth; Education.
 
Facebook owned, Oculus, is reconfirming the industry’s dedication to using Immersive media to revolutionize educational standards around the world. Recently, they announced that they are providing Oculus Rift and Oculus GO headsets to schools around the world, to familiarize teachers with using the technology, and continue to measure the effectiveness of this method.

VR is Maturing

VR has reached a tipping point in its introductory process to our mainstream culture.

According to Gartner, a research company, VR is “rapidly approaching a much more mature stage, which moves it off the emerging technology class of innovation profiles.”

This comes as more and more people have adopted the limitless potential of using VR in all realms, not just for gaming and entertainment.

VR’s potential is exponential, and we at Crosswater cannot wait to see where it’s headed!

Oculus TV

Oculus just announced their newest feature in VR: Oculus TV. This feature is for lovers of technology and entertainment.
The app allows you to stream your favorite movies and TV shows to a flatscreen television in a virtual space. Oculus claims that it is equivalent to watching TV on a 180-inch screen.
