Research Engineers at the Cheltenham Science Festival

EngD student John Tredinnick who works with the National Trust will be at the Cheltenham Science Festival with his Discovery Dome, an inflatable dome with a 360 degree projection screen that uses gaming technology to bring the past alive.

Visitors to this free activity will be able to take control of a chariot, compete against friends and dodge gladiators in a virtual reality race.

John is also leading two workshops to talk about and demonstrate the popular Google Cardboard that allows users to experience virtual reality in a simple, fun, and affordable way.

Owen O’Neill who works with Salisbury Hospital on stroke rehabilitation will be in the Discover Zone with the EPSRC. The theme is Future Living: Future Life. Visitors will be able to find out how regular games consoles could hold the key to helping stroke sufferers get active again.
