Creating Virtual Reality Prisons in Guyana
Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
As part of the project: Mental, Neurological and Substance Abuse Disorders in Guyana’s Jails, 1825 to the Present Day, we created a computer-generated three dimensional visualisation (virtual environment) of Mazaruni Penal Settlement using the original plans from 1842 (Images and a video representation of this technology is attached).
Through the eyes of an avatar, users (prison officers, trainee cadets, and researchers) are able to manoeuvre around a virtual prison environment with standard input devices, such as a keyboard or a mouse. Along with conventional methods, Guyana Prison Service will be able to incorporate this technology to improve in the areas of research and training.
