Students Can Safely View the Solar Eclipse Through "Mixed Reality"

Students around the country had the chance to experience the solar eclipse multiple times without any worry about retina damage through "mixed reality" from zSpace.

Students in Melissa Aspinwall’s Gifted and Talented Classes at Taylors Creek Elementary in Hinesville, Georgia, used zSpace to learn about solar eclipses and how they happen days in advance of the actual event. They could watch how the moon moves slowly in front of the sun and then away again, repeating the event as many times as they wished – unlike yesterday’s less than three-minute event.

The zSpace all-in-one-computer combines elements of VR and AR to create mixed reality computing experiences that are interactive and lifelike. Each all-in-one computer features tracking eyewear and a stylus, allowing students to interact with objects and understand the science behind them.
