The Virtual Photonic Learning Lab, a project that designs a total 3D virtual environment makes it possible to experience laser or laser equipment simulation. The physical properties are as close as possible to reality. This serious game draws on highly advanced technologies in 3D gaming to offer optic and laser systems. Pedagogic scenarios will be created to train technicians, engineers, students, and end users in maintenance, development, assembly, and adjustment. Training in optic and laser technologies requires practical lessons on expensive, stationary equipment that needs high-level maintenance. This project offers real pedagogic innovation, utilizing attractive methods for learners that are more intuitive and help introduce complex concepts. This project brings together teachers and researchers in the fields of physics, the companies IDSC Group, NOVO 3D and the laser training center PYLA. It is funded by the Aquitaine region and by IdEx Bordeaux.
