Wood-Ed is a virtual reality training system that enables students to experience 4 different types of machines;
- a band saw,
- rip saw,
- surface planer and
- spindle moulder
safely with no risk of injury! This helps develop knowledge and skills while building self-confidence when using real machines.
The Wood Working Machine Simulator uses mixed reality and motion sensors to allow the learner to interact with all 4 woodworking machines. Each machine has a real-life task that the learners are asked to complete which contextualizes their learning as well as allows them to practice real skills safely. See how it works by watching the video.
