Virtual reality (VR) is a rapidly evolving technology with the potential to revolutionize the way we communicate and connect with each other. In this event, we will explore the latest applications of VR for communication and memory.  Alex Eckford will discuss how VR can be used to create shared experiences between people who are physically apart, and how VR can be used to help people connect with their memories. During the presentation (technology permitting) Alex will demonstration of a couple of different models of VR headsets, explaining the key features of each headset, such as the resolution, field of view, and tracking capabilities. This event is for anyone who is interested in the future of VR and its potential applications. Whether you are a computer scientist student, IT professional, a healthcare professional, or simply someone who is curious about VR, we hope you will join us for this exciting event!
