Books, VR and Curiscope? Pretty much made for me, to be frank.
For curious kids seeking to learn more about the technology that makes this all possible, DK brings you All About Virtual Reality (publishing 5 October, 2017), a children’s book that explores the experience of virtual reality.
Made in association with CURiSCOPE, a virtual reality studio dedicated to inspiring and educating through incredible experiences, this cutting-edge book from DK explains everything there is to know about VR, and even comes with a VR viewer and smartphone app so that readers can experience the technology first-hand.
Learn about the history of VR, from how it was invented to how it is used in the world today – from aircraft simulators to sci-fi movies, and recent developments like the Oculus Rift. Find out how VR headsets play with your senses of sight, sound, and touch to fool you into thinking you are somewhere else.
Then use the included VR viewer and download the smartphone app to dive into five amazing experiences – come face-to-face with a T.Rex, look inside a volcano, explore the Roman Colosseum, hop aboard the International Space Station, and peek under the surface of a pond. All About Virtual Reality also comes with stickers that allow children to fully customise the included VR viewer.
Created by leading scientists and educators, this cutting-edge book from DK and Curiscope teaches children about VR in a way that is understandable and exciting, engaging future pioneers as they learn about this fascinating technology.
