'Hotel Blind' Makes You A Blind Man In A Virtual World

'Hotel Blind' Makes You A Blind Man In A Virtual World | Virtual Patients, VR, Online Sims and Serious Games for Education and Care | Scoop.it
Indie developer Serellan added Oculus Rift and HTC Vive support to its blindness simulator, Hotel Blind. We asked them why.
Nigel Wynne's insight:
There have been a number of VR apps and games developed that seek to allow the user to experience what it is like to have an illness or disability. These have relied on 360 video or 3D modelling. But how would you go about developing a VR experience for someone who was blind? Hotel Blind achieves this by using voice prompts that help guide a user wearing a VR headset depicting zero vision, to navigate their way through challenges based within a hotel room. This is a simulator, rather than a game, that may have some very serious applications! have just mailed relevant staff at my Uni to get their opinion. thnx @Serellan

Nigel Wynne's insight:
Simulation based learning is expensive! This is why re-purposing and aligning sim modalities are important priorities for educators using sim based techniques. Birmingham City University is achieving this by 3D scanning their moulaged live simulation patients and using these scans to create high fidelity avatars for use in 3D serious games and simulations. 2 birds etc ......
