There is no denying that we are living in a fast-paced world of technological advancements. For instance, Virtual Reality has come a long way and currently, there are all sorts of VR experiments going on in the education space where the technology is being used to explore and study virtual concepts as tangible objects. In fact, the Cardano team is already at work in this sector.
Cardano is making bold moves into these uncharted territories with a bid to create the first of its kind 3-D environment that will enable users to navigate and explore tangible concepts of Blockchain technology. Granted, the world has already had a fair introduction to Blockchain technology with the advent of Bitcoin, however, this new project is set to allow people to understand specific details.
The Symphony of Blockchain project
If word from IOHK is anything to go by, the complexity of both Blockchain and the current state of VR makes up a perfect combination for a space that is ripe for disruption. Charles Hoskinson, the CEO at IOHK, mentioned that
IOHK has a commitment to both education and design
He also added that the move to use VR to educate people on Blockchain technology is “beautiful as much as it is functional and our hope is that it will help make Blockchain truly understandable for a whole new audience”.
The plan by IOHK (the organization backing the Cardano project) is to give the world a top gift that will enable visual and understanding of Blockchain technology using captivating VR technology. People will be able to interact with the hidden concepts that make up Blockchain technology in an entertaining and easily digestible manner.
After all, IOHK is already enabled with interactive and imagery text features that allow visitors to its website to dig deep into understanding what Bitcoin is with clickable Bitcoin blocks and music that deliver detailed information and understanding.
Taking Blockchain understanding further
IOHK is working closely with a creative studio based in the UK in a project termed the Symphony of Blockchain, to create a web-based experience that will be a combination of an auditory as well as visually interactive experience that allows people to explore the concept of cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technology.
According to the projects team leader, the journey so far has been fascinating as the team has had the opportunity to “learn a lot about this underlying technology and sort of finding it a metaphor in which we can use this as a means for people to compare different cryptocurrencies”.
He also added that the team behind the project is poised to make the experience a once in a lifetime event that will eventually educate users and give them the tools they need to adequately compare cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Cardano, IOTA and the likes. Users will also be able to understand the concept of forks and even go back to specific dates when the forks happened and get complete details in a fun and entertaining manner.
