JOHANNES GÜNTNER | THE NEW AGE OF EDUCATION

Johannes Güntner, computer science student at the OTH Regensburg, combines (school) education with Virtual Reality (VR) in his talk. His vision is that pupils and students will be able to acquire theory alongside books and internet through playful application of VR in future. Johannes exchanged knowledge with VR developers and had worked on a project, SmartMirror, on Augmented Reality (AR) in Tokyo for six months. After buying the developer version of the „Oculus Rift“ VR Glasses and engaging in developing a variety of projects, he was able to meet software engineers in Tokyo a year ago.
