Virtual Reality Glasses

A link between technology and imagination

We at the University of Tasmania are inspired by the link between technology and the imagination. We always aim to push further; to broaden horizons; to challenge convention.

That’s why we’ve come up with a game changer.

A device so fun and easy to use it re-imagines and redefines the student experience. It embodies all that we aim to achieve at the University of Tasmania.

Google Cardboard is a smartphone-based Virtual Reality platform that takes an inexpensive cardboard constructed viewer and, by inserting the everyday phone into it, transforms it into an immersive panoramic experience of selected university campus locations.

Visit virtually

We believe an image speaks a thousand words. Be adventurous - put on Google Cardboard glasses and be transported to Tasmania without leaving your armchair!

Assemble in 30 seconds

To assemble, simply follow the instructions on the inside flap of the case – assembly takes less than 30 seconds!

Use your phone

Once a smartphone is inserted into the VR Viewer and the application loads up, the VR Viewer application senses movement and rotates the image accordingly.

Compatible Devices

The Virtual Reality Case can be fitted with all phones that have a screen size of up to 6 inches. However, not every device is able to run the virtual reality application, which requires your phone to have a minimum processing capability (1.7ghz). Compatible phones include (but are not limited to):

iPhone 5

iPhone 6

iPhone 6 Plus

Check the Panoramas

The panoramas below have been shot on the Hobart and Launceston Campus, and in various locations close to the campus in both cities. These will be the panoramas you will be able to see in through the VR Viewer; you can also click on them now to seem them on your computer, tablet or mobile.
