E-learning VR video game

Learning through play

A captivating experience to interactively learn about the hydrological cycle and how clouds are formed.

An experience for everyone

Forge Reply, in order to answer to the specific needs of the museum, developed two e-learning virtual reality applications based on the mobile headset Samsung Gear VR. These apps illustrate some of the individual experiences available within the museum in a straightforward, entertaining and interactive way. More specifically, two different teaching modules were created, one dedicated to the hydrological cycle and the other to the process of how different types of clouds are formed and how to recognize them. Thanks to the Gear VR headset, the applications allow children, even the ones unable to reach the museum due to medical conditions, to interact within 360 degrees virtual environments just with head movements, while tracking scores in order to compare them with their classmates. Within the apps there's a built in audio-video tips system.

The project, under the patronage of Samsung, was focused on the developing of a remote, interactive and involving experience to allow every child to participate.
