Experience cutting edge virtual reality technology first hand with the Oculus Rift and Microsoft Kinect. With 360 degree head tracking and a stereoscopic 3D view the Rift offers an incomparable immersive experience in a virtual world. The Rift is paired with the Microsoft Kinect which maps your body, arms and legs into the 3D world allowing you to use natural gestures to interact with the various challenges.

This unique blend of technologies delivers a truly groundbreaking interactive environment like nothing you have ever experienced before.

Diabetes Voyager is an interactive experience in which you will undertake 3 missions vital to the successful treatment of type 2 diabetes. You will be scored for each mission – see how well you can do and how you match up against your peers.

Using a combination of Microsoft Kinect and novel Oculus Rift virtual reality technology, Diabetes Voyager provides an innovative 3D and interactive view of the body. The missions will require you to move your arms or head to complete tasks set by DIVA, the Diabetes Voyager Assistant.

This year - for the first time - step inside the body of a patient.
