The Orbispace Initiative visited Carriage Works to demo one of Orbispace's virtual environments to over 600 children (and their parents) as a featured presenter for Vogue Codes Kids.
Vogue Codes Kids is an annual event hosted by Vogue Magazine aimed at capturing the culture of innovation technology with interactive and engaging workshops and demos. Vogue writes:
"Children big and small descended upon Sydney’s Carriage works on June 24, 2018, for Vogue Codes Kids hosted in partnership with Codes Club Australia, presented by Westpac and supported by Audi and HP Australia, for a day that proved tech was nothing short of fun. Kids of all ages enjoyed coding and augmented reality workshops, experimented with wearable tech and interactive digital games, and engaged and explored the potential of the digital world—all the while, learning about and cultivating a love for tech."
Those lucky children who got to step inside the Orbispace likely would have been seeing 'humans' in VR for the first time. Appearing as a hologram, Founder, Anna-Grace, told children about the importance of using new technologies to build trust and friendship inside virtual worlds. Everyone gained some very honest feedback from the children, who were some of our most curious users yet!
