Exploring Virtual Reality and Prosthetics is a project that was born out of a Sand Pit at Sheffield Hallam University, it is a multidisciplinary project that ultimately looks at the designing of prosthetics for amputees and the changing attitudes towards disability. The project sees Staff and some students from Sheffield Hallam University working with students at Sheffield University Technical College to build up designs for prosthetics that will then be built and tested in a virtual world.
