Interactive Operating Theatre

Project Description

A clinical skills training package incorporating 360° video of surgical procedures, a gamified 3D operating theatre with interactive AI and Virtual Patient chatbots using voice recognition, natural language processing and text-to-speech technologies.

Designed to work for both VR headsets and on a flat screen, this interactive courseware allows student to familiarise themselves with the operating theatre. As well as being able to watch and review video demonstrations of surgical procedures, key stations in the OR are introduced through a Q&A process with interactive avatars (NPCs).

Software used: Unity.
