PlaygroundVR

PlaygroundVR is the virtual playground for children in hospitals where they can meet each other, talk and create their own games, together. They feel like they are back in the playground through Virtual Reality and forget the hospital environment for a while. Up to eight children can play simultaneously in the virtual playground. The children put the headset on and they can see each other through a virtual avatar in the environment.

I have been the Lead Developer for PlaygroundVR since December 2018. With a great team of five people, we design and build the virtual playgroud, and try to bring it to children at hospitals and homes in the Netherlands.
