This Thursday SenseVirtual will be exhibiting the cutting edge of Virtual Reality technology at the Online and eLearning Conference in Johannesburg.

At SenseVirtual we are continually developing high-end Virtual Reality experiences that we strongly believe will have a positive impact in Africa.

At this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Alejandro González Iñárritu presented a Virtual Reality cinematic masterpiece. Iñárritu is the oscar winning director of Birdman and The Revenant.

His Virtual Reality film, CARNE y ARENA, has become the first virtual reality project to be officially selected by the Cannes Film Festival. Viewers of the experience are describing this as a landmark VR experience.

A major exhibition at the Yorkshire Museum, staged in partnership with the British Museum is using Virtual Reality to bring viewers into the world of the Vikings.

Armed with virtual reality helmets, visitors will be transported back to the camp where Vikings camped out in their thousands during the winter of AD 872-3 while they prepared for conquest.

Guinness has crafted an immersive 360-degree video to transport viewers into the world of ‘colours, shapes and sound’ which Guinness claims is ‘scientifically proven’ to enhance flavours.

Alex Wills says of the campaign, “VR technology is increasingly becoming a viable new media platform for brands and agencies that are looking for powerful ways to impact on branded storytelling. We’re really excited to have partnered with Guinness on a campaign that uses VR, not as a gimmick or a ‘first’, but for what the technology was actually designed to do: suspend the senses and transport you to another place”

At the UK’s Royal London Hospital, there is a new medical virtual reality platform that trains surgeons around the world as if they are in the same room.

Dr. Shafi Ahmed says “VR allows a unique immersive learning experience that puts the student directly next to world class surgeons. We felt that traditional methods of teaching needed disrupting and the rapid advances in augmented and virtual reality allowed a different way of transferring knowledge and skills. Our students want to use the latest technology to learn.”

Feel free to let us know if your business has an interesting problem you believe that Virtual Reality can solve as we are always interested in prototyping VR solutions.
