Working on behalf of Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, FirstCar have recently completed the UK's first Virtual Reality film. Destined for use in Leicestershire's Crash Car, the film completely revolutionises the experience for young people. Currently, the film is shown on screens inside the car - so the windows much be blocked out to prevent light coming in. Now when participants enter the car, they will wear fully immersive Samsung Gear VR goggles This means that the windows blackouts can be removed and those outside the car can watch as the occupants see the horrors of a car crash unfold before their eyes like never before.
