Experience Van Gough like never before

Expanding into the classroom, VR headsets are flipping conventional teaching on its head. Now helping children experience the world from the comfort of the classroom. VR is a leading example and arguably a game-changer for the next generation of students, graduates and vocational learners and enables experiential learning. It allows students to immerse themselves in an interactive experience where they can visualise their actions' outcomes first-hand.

Lessons beyond the classroom

Waseda University researchers developed a new robot training method that is opening doors of possibility — literally. Robot technology has been a part of our lives with many films depicting futuristic ways Robots can rule the world, but maybe now they can...University researchers split the mind of a robot whilst programming its behaviour and in the process, the learning side of the robots brain managed to train itself to open the door based on user repetition! Pretty cool, right?

Hold the door

Built in Australia, this new eight story building is the future of sustainable buildings setting the bar for whats possible. The $40-million office tower will be outfitted with 1,182 solar panels the thickness of a regular glass facade. When complete, the array will provide enough power to meet practically all of the building’s energy needs, with almost no ongoing power costs. The building will also be carbon-neutral in a few years, serving as a shining example of the prospects for decarbonising the construction industry.
