Koen Hufkens is a research associate at Harvard University and his research focuses on “understanding the relation between climate (change) and seasonal variability in vegetation growth”. He’s also a maker and software developer and he has brought all these interests together to create the ‘Virtual Forest‘. The project uses a Raspberry Pi 2 to capture, via a Ricoh Theta S USB camera, a forest-scape and then deliver that picture to the Internet over an ethernet cable.

Virtual Forest is a project to bring a live digital feed of forest imagery to the VR world. Virtual Forest allows you to immersively track the seasons using 360 photography and time lapse movies of a forest in the North Eastern US. All media can be viewed in a regular browser, or on a mobile device supporting gyroscope feedback. For a complete immersive experience Virtual Forest supports Google Cardboard and Samsung GearVR. Additional support for VR headsets such as the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift is provided through the A-frame framework.
