Virtual Studio at BAS Cambridge

At our home in Cambridge we have an immersive studio where visitors can explore our stations and ship. Whilst developed originally for VR glasses, this impressive space moves away from the singular experience of such systems, into a space that is shared. Much more useful as a training tool, learning environment and incident management platform
