We have a new Virtual Reality group forming, starting with Poppy’s VR Scanner project and Anthony’s Dragon’s Fire Flying game.

The aim is to make a scanner using dozens of raspberry pi cameras, to be used at the University of Brighton. We have £1000 of funding to complete the project, which doesn’t sound like much, but we like a challenge.

Anthony has been testing a balancing game, standing on halves of coconuts to shoot basketballs. He intends to replace the coconuts with 3D print balancing blocks and embed sensors so that when people shift their weight on them they can experience flying in a VR world. There’s more info on his facebook page https://www.facebook.com/theroseofeducation

The next meet up is on Monday 14 November 2pm (ish). All Build Brighton members welcome
