Virtual Reality: The new frontier for Industrial Design

Mon, 02/27/2017 - 11:01am

Western Industrial Design student Matt Hoogestraat is standing in the middle of an oval shaped room with the sea stretched out around him in all directions. Around the exterior of the room are tables with odd designs hovering above them. Matt teleports from table to table, examining the designs until he finds one with his name on it and his designs above it.

While all of this is happening, Matt is sitting in the office of his professor, Jason Morris, motionless with a helmet and goggles on.

This is virtual reality.
