Description: The Lloyd’s Register Foundation Heritage & Education Centre wants to inspire the next generation of maritime surveyors and engineers in an innovative and engaging way. Our vision is to allow visitors to learn about the importance of surveyor roles and how they’ve evolved over time as maritime engineering has progressed.

From that vision we’ve created ‘Ship Surveyor Through the Ages’; a gamified VR learning experience that will immerse you in simulated environments and challenge you to take on the varied roles of a surveyor across key eras of maritime engineering. You will undertake key tasks that surveyors would perform in three types of vessel construction: wood, composite and contemporary. Will you be able to locate all hazards and faults on-board the vessels before your time runs out? Anchors aweigh!

Review: Ship Surveyor Through the Ages – VR is a virtual job game of sorts in which you play the role of a maritime vessel ship surveyor as you make sure each of the 3 different ships from 3 different eras is safe (there are various “defects” to find.) I just wish this app was a lot more educational. I had a million questions that needed answering like “What type of vessel is this?”, “what was it used for?”,”What famous people sailed in one?”, that sort of thing, but there was nothing. It is at least free I suppose and given that it is free I do think it is worth a look, but the developers could have done so much more with this for very little extra work.
