zSpace Educational Virtual Reality Systems: Oculus Teach

by Lambert Varias

If zSpace has its way, our kids will learn in the same way Tony Stark works in the movies. The company makes virtual reality computers that have infinite applications yet are easy enough for children to use. Unlike popular VR setups like the Oculus Rift and personal computers, a zSpace desktop sacrifices immersion in favor of a more intuitive and far more social experience.

Instead of a headset, zSpace systems use a large display with built-in tracking cameras. Students then wear thin frame stereoscopic glasses with tracking dots to see images in 3D. A six-axis stylus lets them interact with the digital objects on display. A handful of schools in the United States are already using the zSpace. Faculty love that how the machine makes abstract concepts visible and virtually tangible. Students can also use zSpace to thoroughly examine objects, experiments and scenarios that they would never have access to in real life. And as with most new gadgets, zSpace’s novelty helps encourage kids to learn and participate.

zSpace also makes specialized VR setups for medical training and research. Head to the company’s website for more information. You can check out the company’s YouTube page for more demos and user testimonials.
