Towards VR-based systems for school experiments

  • In this paper we present the steps towards a well-designed concept of a 5VR6 system for school experiments in scientific domains like physics, biology and chemistry. The steps include the analysis of system requirements in general, the analysis of school experiments and the analysis of input and output devices demands. Based on the results of these steps we show a taxonomy of school experiments and provide a comparison between several currently available devices which can be used for building such a system. We also compare the advantages and shortcomings of 5VR6 and 5AR6 systems in general to show why, in our opinion, 5VR6 systems are better suited for school-use.
