Kirklees College would like to offer you the opportunity to see into outer space and enjoy a virtual reality experience at our ‘Believing is Seeing’ exhibition, organised by our ILT Development team.

 

Come along and try three different ‘out of this world’ experiences. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for anyone interested in engineering, science, digital media, photography, music and art and design.

 

Vizuality Studio

Vizuality Studios introduces a new way of seeing. Changing the way we interact, communicate and experience, discover a revolution in reality.

Vizuality Studios brings virtual reality together with natural freedom of movement, changing the way we experience and interact with the world.


Get ready for a revolution in reality with wire-free VR headsets and custom-built 4D motion platforms to take you to a whole new level of immersion. The only limit is your imagination. Participants will be able to enter and enjoy the virtual reality experience.

Prior to visiting Kirklees College Vizuality Studio are exhibiting in Los Angeles at UCLA, San Francisco University and London. Take a look at their site here: http://vizuality-studio.com/

 

Astronomy – Optical Hardware Ltd

Barnsley firm Optical Hardware are binocular and telescope manufacturers and distributors. They have one of the largest ranges of optical products available in Europe.

 

They will be bringing along and demonstrating two different telescopes:

 

  1. Reflecting scopes which use mirrors, they are also called Newtonian Scopes because Isaac Newton invented them.

  2. Refracting scopes which use lenses and prisms.

 

They are both large pieces of equipment that will enable participants to look into outer space and to take photos using their smartphones.

 

The firm will also be demonstrating ‘astro-scoping’ to all students with a smart phone. So please make sure they bring their phones with them. This gives higher magnification to camera lenses, and is quite amazing.

 

360 Degree 3D Google Goggles

Participants will get the opportunity to build some 3D Google Goggles, watch a 3D film that has been made by the college and then take the goggles away. The goggles are virtual/augmented reality compatible, so if you have downloaded the ‘aurasma’ app you will be able to watch much more!
