Today we were visited by Christine Fonock-Smith, the Product Manager of ReliefBand. Prior to her visit we had prepared several questions, but upon her arrival we were suprised to see her bearing three ReliefBands for E.V.R.T. to use. Thank you for this generous donation ReliefBand!
We began to discuss the history of ReliefBand, its various uses for motion sickness, morning sickness, and virtual reality. Christine ran us through operation of the device and how it works.
We had an informative discussion with Christine, and we cannot wait to put our ReliefBands to use!
There was an energy missing from H003 during the past week. Today Mr. Boyer and three research teams returned from the International Science conference at St. Paul's School in London. We are glad to have NAS Tek, NET, and Innovo back in the lab. Congratulations to all!
Also, NAS Tek took the top award of the whole conference for the best presentation! Way to represent North Penn High School!

Today we say goodbye to Mr.Boyer in addition to NET, Innovo, and NAS Tek. They will be spending the week in London, culminating with participation in a research conference located at St. Paul's School in London.
EVRT is not just left to twiddle our thumbs.
Recently, the existence of a company specializing in motion sickness remedy was brought to EVRT's attention. They make wearable technology to alleviate all kinds of motion sickness, including experiences within VR. They are located extremely close to North Penn High School, so we contacted them.
We have a meeting with a representative of ReliefBand in a few weeks. That gives us lots of time to prepare a sickness-inducing demonstration for their product. There is a link to their website below.
Lately, EVRT has dedicated focus in creating a blueprint for our simulation. We have storyboards, outlines, and other instruction to guide us through the process of creation in Unreal Engine 4.
Also, we have been experimenting with various versions of different surgery and health care simulations.
Our simulation is beginning to take shape!
