Random42’s New VR Experience Explores Immersive Education Possibilities in Science
London-based scientific communication studio, Random42, have released their first solely educational virtual reality experience that takes you on an immersive journey inside the human body. The experience, entitled Intercellular, takes a more cinematic approach towards an educational virtual reality (VR) experience designed to educate and engage the user with the fascinating scientific processes that take place within the human body.
Random42 are at the forefront of innovative technologies for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry and this new release emphasises their desire to share this innovation and unique storytelling capability with a wider audience. The company consists of scientists, artists, animators and programmers who collaborate to effortlessly intertwine the worlds of science, art and technology, producing some of the most impactful scientific stories, imagery and interactive experiences.
Ben Ramsbottom, Random42 Medical Director and CEO commented on the new release:
“We are excited to launch our first truly educational virtual reality experience that is publicly available. We hope that this will go beyond our normal client base so that schools and universities as well as the greater scientific community can gain value from our work.”
The new educational experience Intercellular can be viewed on the Random42 YouTube channel or website, or for the full immersive VR experience download the Random42 Virtual Reality App and use a VR viewer with your phone.
Leo Chilcott, Random42’s Production Director, said:
“Intercellular was one of the more challenging VR projects the team have worked on. Transitioning from one 3D environment to the next is a delicate process in VR, making sure the leaps are not disorientating or jarring for the viewer. I think the team’s hard work really paid off, I especially enjoy moving from the cellular to molecular level, watching the cell split open revealing another world inside.”
