Making new realities: Virtual Reality and the Maker Movement
This journey visited Idea Square at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. CERN is one of the world's largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. CERN IdeaSquare is a dedicated test facility at CERN that hosts detector R&D projects, and facilitates student programs. With maker spaces (Harri Toivonen), and leading-edge digital communication tools, including Virtual Reality (Neal Hartman), Idea Square (Markus Nordberg) is a dynamic space for prototyping and creating products, approaches and partnerships between scientists and communities. This journey explored their approach to labs and innovation.
