Laval Virtual is one of the largest virtual reality events in the world. The show, which has been running since 1999, is Europe’s seminal virtual reality event attracting the “who’s who” of digital innovation. This year Laval Virtual has teamed up with Euro VR to launch a European Virtual Reality Tour. The expedition will see reps from both organisation travel through 22 different countries – covering an impressive 25,000 kilometres! Their mission is simple, to visit the most influential companies in the field of immersive technology (virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, 3D interaction, internet of things and artificial intelligence).
The team composed of Ismaël Boucher (international liason officer for Laval Virtual), Gauthier Blanche (EVRT Technical Co-ordinator), and Valentin Régnier (Community Manager EVRT) chose to stop by the Virtualware offices whilst in Spain. The experts in VR and AR from Laval Virtual had the opportunity to test our new VR system which was recently patented by the Virtualware Group and presented at CES, and SXSW in Texas. The system offers a novel low-cost method for tracking multiple users in large-scale environments. The system has unlimited potential for scaling and offers a game changing solution for large interactive VR experiences.
