Yesterday morning while the Year 8’s went to tech, the Year 7’s had the opportunity to have a Google Expedition. We used Google Cardboard to look at things in a 3D perspective. The google cardboard is like the Oculus Rift but when you move it doesn’t do any effect with the cardboard. Also with Oculus Rift you can play your games like never before with a 3D view as well.
Mr Clarke provided us with these cardboards and he showed us places all around the world. He first took us to the Borneo Rainforest with David Attenborough. Do you know who he is? Well if you don’t he is a famous scientist and narrator of many documentaries. The 2nd location was another rainforest where we had to find a Python which was camouflage into the leaves. We also had to find a dead Leaf Mantis, praying mantis which were camouflaged too and were exoskeleton.
My favourite location was when we were at a skyscraper. It felt like I was going to fall of the building. I could see heaps of tall hotels, pools and lots of people. It was also scary because there was a man looking straight at you on the side.
The google expedition experience was awesome. I liked the 3D perspectives and cool locations. Did you also know that the cardboard is worth lots of money? I look forward to see what the Oculus Rift effects feels like.
