Educate Africa with VR

At The Virtual Space we have a transformative purpose – Educate Africa with VR.

Check out our revolutionary NEW development – VR Schools

We believe that Virtual Reality is an incredibly powerful educational tool. Not only powerful but also affordable at the entry level using the computer that’s already in your pocket, the smartphone.

We started making products for educational VR in 2015, manufacturing Cardboard VR headsets, educational kits for Google Expeditions and arcade style VR systems.

After 5 years of preliminary development and a full year of design work, we are proud to present the only VR glasses designed and manufactured in Africa, our flagship product, The Virtual Space VR Glasses.

Why VR in education?

Virtual Reality is immersive, which means you feel really present in the virtual world.

VR is intuitive. In virtual reality, you use your hands directly to interact with the virtual world. This is “hands on” experience.

Virtual reality simulates scarce resources like workshops, laboratories, museums, vehicles, tools and classrooms in software at low or no cost.

VR increases the reach of educators through telepresence and shared virtual spaces.

All the above points mean virtual reality is changing education.

VR makes use of spatial memory, one of our most powerful forms of memory. Think of places you have been and how well you remember them.

This means VR experiences are inherently memorable.

When you are immersed in VR, you respond to the experiences with powerful emotions because they feel real. Emotion creates vivid memories.
