Arizona State University’s Gaspee VR Experience

Arizona State University’s Gaspee VR Experience

by Alvin Manalac November 8, 2019 VR, Entertainment, Training

Background

It’s no secret that immersive technologies like VR and AR can be powerful learning tools. They transport students into different worlds – past, present or future – and give them a first-hand experience that’s otherwise impossible, difficult or expensive.

And having made a name for themselves as a leading university in innovation, Arizona State University were looking for a partner to kick off a juicy new project.

And it was a big one. Between a mammoth VR experience and 26 content-heavy game-based assessments to build from scratch, Nucco Brain had their work cut out for them.

Kumbh Mela – Largest Spiritual Gathering on Earth

Kumbh Mela – Largest Spiritual Gathering on Earth

by Alvin Manalac September 1, 2019 360, VR, Entertainment, Travel / Tourism

Overview

Kumbh Mela is one of the largest spiritual gatherings of people on Planet Earth. It is celebrated four times over the course of 12 years, the site of the observance rotating between four pilgrimage places on four sacred rivers — at Haridwar on the Ganges River, at Ujjain on the Shipra, at Nashik on the Godavari, and at Prayagraj on the confluence of the Ganges, the Yamuna, and the mythical Sarasvati. Each site’s celebration is based on a distinct set of astrological positions of the Sun, the Moon, and Jupiter, the holiest time occurring at the exact moment when these positions are fully occupied.

Attendees at the Kumbh Mela come from all walks of life, ranging from sadhus (holy men), who remain naked year-round or practice the most severe physical discipline, to hermits, who leave their isolation only for these pilgrimages, and even to silk-clad teachers using the latest technology. Vast crowds of disciples, friends, and spectators join the individual ascetics and organisations.
