The Instructions

Virtual Reality is considered an important technology that gives excellent scope to diverse fields. In this session, participants will be introduced to VR and its applications in different sectors such as, fashion, gaming, and training. In the end, they will be introduced to 3D modeling software and learn the process to create a virtual scene.

In this camp participants are going to start fashion tech to explore VR technology and learn 3D modeling, you will need to attend 5 days during the week, each day you will have a one-hour class.

On the last day, they will be asked to conduct a final project using the knowledge and skills they learned.

 

 

start the lesson with the engineering design challenge, which is a problem you provide to them and hear from them their solutions.

ex:

Aisha is a fashion artist, and she wants to establish a virtual fashion store that can be explored through software to help people to save time and choose clothes in an easy way.

Aisha is asking for your help to design 3D avatars that can be called virtual humans. These 3D avatars can help the shoppers in trying their outfit and see how their cloth will actually look like after wearing.

 

VR INTRODUCTION

 

Is a trending technology referring to a computer-generated simulation in which a person can interact within an artificial three-dimensional environment using electronic devices, such as special goggles with a screen or gloves fitted with sensors?

 

Types of Virtual Reality – VR

There are three main types of virtual reality used today to transform the world around us, including non-immersive, semi-immersive, and fully immersive simulations.

To get a better understanding of how the technology is used, let’s break down the different types of VR and see examples of each.

Types of Virtual Reality – VR

1- Fully-Immersive

2- Simi-Immersive

3- Non-Immersive 

 

Non-immersive simulations are often forgotten as an actual type of VR, because it’s very common in our everyday lives.

The average video game is technically considered a non-immersive virtual reality experience. Think about it, you’re sitting in a physical space, interacting with a virtual one.

Semi-immersive experiences provide users with a partially virtual environment to interact with. In this example, the instruments in front of the girl are real and the windows are screens displaying virtual content. 

It’s important to keep in mind that semi-immersive VR simulations still give users the perception of being in a different reality.

 

Introduce Vectary software

Day 2 - Personalize your 3D avatar

To create a virtual scene, participants will be introduced to Vectary software and learn how to create basic objects and use basic options such as change colors and sizes to modify their virtual characters and add some accessories.
