In October 2014, Virtually Mine, alongside 3 other external exhibitors, were invited out to New York to create a virtual reality area for BGL Groups annual conference held in the Hilton, Midtown NY. The other exhibitors included Facebook, Google and the electric car company, Tesla.
With us, we brought:
- 10 Oculus Rifts
- 10 pairs of headphones
- 10 controllers for PC
- All simulations and experiences
We worked alongside the Directors of BGL Group to create the focal point of the interactive afternoon in the ‘Living With Technology’ area.
Over the course of 90 minutes, we guided four groups of 70 people through three separate simulations. We explained how to use the equipment and answered all questions virtual reality, including: how the equipment worked, origins of OculusVR and how this technology may be implemented outside of the video games industry.
The afternoon was a success. All that joined left with a smile on their face and spoke of the experience throughout the day.
