SELA members engineer virtual reality video trail

A group of Engineering students have launched a new project to showcase everyday marvels of innovation as part of the Sheffield Festival of Science and Engineering 2017.

Available until 31 March 2017, Engineering 360° is a series of videos that people can watch on their smartphones as they walk around the city.

Created by students from the Sheffield Engineering Leadership Academy (SELA), the 360° videos use virtual reality technology to reveal how engineers create the world around us. Each video focuses on a distinct area of engineering, something that the organisers hope will help to challenge people’s perceptions of what modern day engineering is.
