Virtual reality is ideal for entertainment, but now 'Teach-U: VR' is here to help make it easier to learn to play piano or drums without having to go to in-person lessons.
Developed by NYU Shanghai students Sean Kelly and Sam Shi, 'Teach-U: VR' teaches young students to play by incorporating the benefits of augmented reality and virtual reality.
If parents want their children to learn to play piano or drums, it usually means long and expensive lessons. However, 'Teach-U: VR' looks to do away with this by allowing kids anywhere in the world to benefit from the technology.
The 'Teach-U: VR' setup utilizes Google Cardboard rather than the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive to help ensure that anyone can gain access to and utilize the technology.
