Review: I think most people realise a big part of the future of VR lies within the educational sector and that is where ‘AVROD’ comes into it. This impressive collection of over 40 archaeological and cultural significant subcultures, landscapes and buildings are sure to spark someone interest. You can explore them, move around many of them and there is a little bit of educational text all about them. While none of them are as mind-blowing as apps that specialise in that one particular building or structure they are still impressive and I for one would love to see this grow. But given that this is free as well I give my respect to the developers. It’s well worth a look even if you are bored one day, but when used in the right educational setting it could become priceless.
