Sibro

EducationTech Platform - synched virtual reality shared experiences

Sibro provides synched virtual reality shared experiences and gives people an interactive and immersive Virtual Reality 360 tour experience. The first use of the Sibro platform will be providing VR tours of some of the world’s most notable historical sites. It will engage pupils with history, bringing the subject to life through VR battlefield tours. Pupils can experience an engaging and historically accurate tour of the Normandy battlefields without leaving the classroom, negating the costs of a ‘real-world’ tour. The experience is managed through a central controller, allowing every user to have the same simultaneous experience.

What prompted you to develop it?

Sibro was born out of an idea from battlefield tours company Esprit, with the objective being to offer schools more than just their traditional field trip to the Somme.

Many students cannot practically attend history tours abroad for a number of reasons – a main reason being the cost of booking a place on these tours.

From this, Mashbo was responsible for building the Sibro platform – a 360 virtual reality product that provides an immersive shared experience.

Is it in production or use?

The Sibro platform has recently launched, after being demoed a number of times – as well as being featured on BBC News. Sibro are currently in talks with schools about marketing the platform.

Who inspires you?

Simon Sinek – It starts with why

What do you hope to achieve in developing this innovation?

Sibro looks to disrupt the current education marketplace and revolutionise education for pupils of all ages, regardless of their means or background.

We are also currently exploring new opportunities in healthcare and training.
