BeeKeep is an immersive virtual reality environment rendering system and research experimentation content for biological analysis. As the name suggests, it’s a “virtual reality for bees”.
BeeKeep was developed for the Department of Biology at University of Oulu to research the behavior of bees when predisposed to certain stimuli.
The research was carried out by monitoring the bees’ brainwaves as the bees were put inside a dome with changing virtual world projected inside it. BeeKeep proved that virtual realities can help scientific research greatly. And the bees liked it too.
