The Shanghai-based virtual reality (VR) device designer and manufacturer, DPVR, is collaborating with Veative, a provider of immersive learning solutions, to deliver professional VR solutions for education to assist students studying STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).
Veative has created an online VR educational platform that packs a library of interactive, curriculum-aligned augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) modules for STEM, English language learning, and virtual tours. The company can adapt the curriculum to cater to different age groups with varying levels of difficulty. The platform features over 600 online STEM lessons for students in over 20 countries worldwide.
The companies have also jointly developed a modified version of DPVR’s P1 Pro device, called the ‘EduPro,’ that comes with a professional education OS and 100+ hours of offline courses to aid students in areas of intermittent network connectivity.
Talking about the EduPro, Dave Dolan, Chief Product Officer at Veative said, “DPVR’s P1 Pro headset was 90% ready for the education market, but the company was willing to work with us on the last 10% in order to make the device more suitable for our needs. Based on feedback we provided, DPVR made revisions to the head strap, liner, OS, and more, and the finished device became the EduPro.”
Derek Liu, Vice President at DPVR, said, “I am continually amazed at the new ideas Veative comes up with to apply virtual reality technology to a range of different applications.”
