Helping our youth make Career Choices
We are working with Bursary Management Systems (BMS) to create a series of truly engaging "A Day in the Life of" career video’s, freely available as downloads to mobile phones & PC’s.

Short, sharp, and building on 3D, these videos will help our youth to better understand what a particular career choice entails, see what to study to get there, and as a result, make more informed career choices. We know that this will make study bursary applications more focused and so much more efficient.

We aim to do this sector by sector, and if you can help in the form of sector sponsorship, please get in touch .

Welcome

The Naledi3d Factory - "One of South Africa's most innovative companies" - (Business Day)


What we do
The Naledi3d Factory uses VR to communicate concepts and practices in a wide range of disciplines including industrial training and safety awareness, health and sanitation, heritage, new technology concepts etc. including applications that can impact on community development.

We focus our efforts in Africa - where we have worked with organisations in Ethiopia, Rwanda, Uganda, Mozambique, Sudan, Senegal, and Zimbabwe - as well as South Africa itself.


Why VR
VR is a powerful way to communicate ideas and concepts and allows us to create content that is both content and context rich – content that also engages the end-user.

 

How
In the past, VR technologies were the reserve of wealthy “techies” with head-mounted displays and tactile gloves.

Today, we can bring this powerful interactive 3D medium to most modern desktop and notebook PCs and virtually any community.

 

“We dream visually, we read visually. Therefore, by using VR to show concepts and knowledge in a visual way, we can dramatically enhance the level of understanding of any subject

VR in Africa
The Naledi3d Factory is unique world-wide in its work exploring the use of VR to communicate concepts to people in emerging communities and have developed an enviable track record in this area.

In Africa, where poor literacy skills and language barriers pose a huge challenge to communication, VR comes into its own. It’s intensely visual nature overcomes these barriers by showing content – not telling.

Our work with emerging farmers in Zimbabwe was selected by the World Summit Awards (WSA) in 2009 for a special mention as “one of the most outstanding examples of creative and innovative e-Content” (selected from 20 000 nominations from 157 countries).
