Moffitt Cancer Center and Ringling College Bring VR to Cancer Patients

Ringling VR students and the acclaimed Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa teamed up in 2019 to develop creative content for digital healthcare technologies, including virtual reality, animations for patient education, and training videos for physicians. Patients receiving radiation treatments, for example, are now able to immerse themselves in VR and experience what the treatments will be like before they happen. Check out our Blog to learn more about this exciting intersection of creativity, technology, and design!

Ringling Students launch Wet Dog Corp. with Flight School at SXSW

Wet Dog Corp. is a simulator-style game set within a megacorporation that pays you to wash dogs. It’s a simple task… until it’s not! VR students mentored by the award-winning team at Flight School created the game while learning the essentials of pre-production, asset creation, and game design.
