VRgineers is a Prague-based VR Hardware Startup. We discussed their 5k VR Headset at CeBit2017 with Marek Polčák. He was looking for the transformative VR that would finally fulfill the promise laid out when virtual reality was introduced as a concept. Since nothing like what he envisioned existed, Marek decided to build his own VR equipment using his knowledge and tenacity. How tough was it to build it? What are the opportunities for such a standing out device? Those questions and more are answered in this episode.

Why would one use virtual reality in Hospitals? Computer Graphics was used since long time in Medicine to explain complex issues. Using virtual reality is just the next step, to be able to visualise the body that is an awesome 3d machine itself in virtual space. This is useful as so far everything was flat and fixed while the only way to experience a Body was to do an autopsy yourself. The Heart VR Project is an education experience showing various congenital heart defects. Unlike a heart attack, those defects are born with. The heart is a very complex structure so using VR is helping the doctors visualising a heart on the go - right in their head. Nurses, Doctors and Students - they all are able to learn faster and easier. Tune in for the great discussion to learn more about it!
