We have been working in the field of additional education for over 7 years. During this time, we managed to build in Russia and the CIS the largest network of mobile planetariums thereby introducing astronomy to more than 500,000 children.
We wanted to improve the quality of the planetariums as well as find ways to make them globally accessible We found a solution in Virtual Reality technology.
Earlier this year, we launched the Amazing Cinema application. In just six months over 300,000 people downloaded the app and in April we launched a Virtual Planetarium franchise, which already works in 15 cities.
The next stage is the creation of a platform to virtually discover the world through teaching and interactive games – a type of Virtual Encyclopedia for the natural sciences including, but not limited to: chemistry, physics, biology, natural science, geography, and history.
We have created a VR encyclopedia in which anyone can create their own content and share their interpretation of knowledge. Content on the site will be generated according to the users’ preferences and selected through a voting process.
