Virtual Reality (and related Augmented Reality) is a whole new medium, the first for over a generation. It transports you, to real or imagined places, and allows you to connect to people and characters on an emotional level.
VR has become a popular job market for engineers, artists, designers, educators, and more. It’s the perfect job someone who wants a position at the frontline of technological innovation. We’re on the cusp of a virtual reality revolution (yes, even beyond Pokemon Go), and you won’t want to miss out.
Who are they? A design collaborative and software development studio focussed on developing software for virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality games and apps.
What iX interns worked on: By the end of their four-week internship, a team of iX VR interns designed and developed something called a a financial inclusion enhancement simulation for their client, Barclays. The solution included a virtual banking experience where users could visualize the movement of large sums of money and use the system to make transactions in a virtual space.
"I absolutely loved being a part of the VR class. It exceeded my expectations and I am so thankful for the decision. This class has sparked a passion for VR/AR, and I am confident that I am going to pursue it for jobs in the near future. I have been looking for an industry that gets me excited, and I finally found it!"
"Gerard was such a helpful, approachable, and fun teacher! I came to this class not knowing anything about VR or Vive or Unity, but now I feel like I have a foundation of knowledge that allows me to pursue specific areas further on my own."
"There are not very many people in general with significant VR experience, and somehow I was lucky enough to be taught by one of the most experienced VR developers I’ve ever met. Gerhard was a great guide in our exploration of an amazing new field that is quite hard to wrap one’s head around."
"I never thought I’d get the opportunity to explore the world of virtual reality and learn about the applications of this rapidly progressing field. With the enhanced arsenal of skills I learned, I was able to come away from my summer, much more confident in myself and tremendously more knowledgeable about an innovation I previously knew nothing about."
"This was the best summer / intern / study abroad ever. iX is an incredible opportunity to learn how to make amazing stuff, better than half the nonsense you see on the web, as well as see beautiful Cape Town that you've heard so much about."
