MetadataShow full item record
How will the further development of virtual reality enhance accessibility, reduce cost, & diversify applications to affect the future of design education? This research explores existing virtual reality products, relative cost, development over time, & the increasing applications of virtual reality to education, travel, & practice. As more companies release their virtual reality products, the cost of their product is more affordable than the last, making virtual studios a less expensive educational platform than one's current studio. The further development& increased availability of virtual reality can enhance the future of design education from turning three-dimensional drawings into "real" spaces, experiencing not only other places around the world, but also the interior of a digital model, having studio anywhere, & designing in seconds. In the proposed design, the virtual studio is neutral, allows for flexibility, & supports both single and multi-user.
