KidCity VR

Show More

KidCity VR is an educational platform that allows parents and kids to play and explore together in virtual reality. The parent is able to access the game in the same room as their child or remotely via a virtual reality headset, mobile phone, laptop or desktop computer. Children can both see and hear their parent in the game, and the parent can manipulate objects in the game space remotely from their phone or computer. Treehouse was created at the 2016 Reality Virtually Hackathon at MIT and won the Grand Prize for Best VR Hack for its vision and unique multimodal functionality.
