What is Virtual Reality?
Virtual Reality (VR) is a technology which allows to experience and interact with an environment that doesn't exist in an astounding realistic way. Unlike other traditional interfaces, the 3D experience, sound effects and even touch simulation place the user inside an immersive and believable experience and let him be an integrated part and major actor of this experience.
How does the APDRC use it ?
The APDRC use Virtual Reality tools to train people and raise general public awareness on disaster risks and make them learn, through disaster simulations, what are the proper emergency reactions and the step by step guidelines in each situation. Through different developed games, the users have the possibility to immerse themselves into different emergency situations and have to escape from there safely.
What opportunities does it offer?
Being able to learn how to handle a disaster situation while staying in a safe environment is what the Virtual Reality can offer. This method completely modernize theorical learning and provides, in addition, a practical dimension and realistic scenarios that make the understanding and learning easier and more efficient.
