  • Content

    Learn how to make VR and how to facilitate the development of VR productions. You will work on real-life cases from large Danish companies

    In this course, you will choose between a selection of interesting business cases from large Danish companies. You work with your case in groups where you will unleash the full potential of your own unique set of skills. The first part of the course consists of learning how to make VR in Unity (in three different levels of difficulty, so you will definitely fit right in), as well as learning how to facilitate the development of VR productions. During the course, we will visit EON Reality’s Interactive Digital Center, where you will have the chance to try state-of-the-art technologies within the realm of Extended Reality (XR). Also, various guest lecturers from XR companies will talk with each group about what it is like to  work professionally with XR technologies and what the next big thing will be.

    We will celebrate you becoming a master of reality with an exhibition where each group presents their VR-project and a winner from each project is found. Each member in the winning group gets a grand prize of Oculus Quest.

    All groups will have access to VR setups during the Summer School.

    Ownership of intellectual properties will vary depending on cases.
