Developing the Corrupt Kitchen VR

The Digital Research Team are working with Computer Science, Law and Politics on developing a VR game about corruption. Dr Paul Tennent describes some of the development below: Stage 1: Building the Kitchen Environment. The first challenge for creating Corrupt Kitchen VR has been the development of the virtual environment. It would have to be …

The Corrupt Kitchen VR

The Digital Research Team are facilitating a unique digital collaboration between Computer Science, Law and Politics. Dr Paul Tennent outlines the project below: “In an effort to explore attitudes to workplace corruption in a playful manner, researchers at Nottingham University are creating a new virtual reality (VR) experience where players will run a commercial kitchen. …

Horizon scanning for digital engagement technologies in Politics and Law

The digital research team are working with Politics, Law and Computer Science on a provocative digital engagement in research on corruption. During the latest meeting we were discussing the possibilities of using a serious virtual reality game to explore trust issues in the workspace. Some creative ideas we had involved having the user virtually work …
