Our Story

OdinXR started in July 2020 with Tessa Ruiz de Luzuriaga, a Cal Poly electrical engineering student struggling with the shift to virtual learning, despite the accessibility and mobility E learning provided. While these classes taught the same content as before, the format limited interaction and hands on experimentation. Students were having trouble applying the theory they learned in meaningful ways, contrary to Cal Poly's motto: "Learn by Doing."

OdinXR creates VR environments, our World Tree system, that rely on our digital twins. Our equipment library allows students and professors to conduct experiments as if they were in a physical space - without the added danger and expense. Our main focus is providing a customizable electrical 
engineering sandbox experience.
