Cave on Virtual Revolution

Fontys Information and Communication Technology

FHICT with, among others, Cave represented at Virtual Revolution at the Koningshof

Virtual Reality is being predicted a great future. For companies it is important to know how the apps can be of value to them. That's why Mikrocentrum organised a fair dedicated to this topic. On 1, 2 and 3 March 2016, interested people could visit the fair in the Koningshof in Veldhoven, as well as the congress and the demonstrations, for free. Fontys Hogescholen was one of the partners.

Should virtual reality be considered a hype or is it serious business? That's the question that kept the Brabantse Ontwikkelings Maatschappij (BOM) occupied. That's why they explored the market for the possibilities of virtual reality and augmented reality (ar) of Noord-Brabant. The results of that market exploration were being presented at the Virtual (R)evolution fair. According to Saskia Baeten of Mikrocentrum, Virtual (R)evolution is oriented at a very wide range of different applications. "The fair focuses on industrial applications: Océ is there to hold a lecture on, among others, the way VR can be used during trainings within a business setting. But there were also parties present who developed VR trainings for the business world, such as Vroom Training, which works for leading companies like Océ and ASML. Next to that there were participants who focused both on the industrial sector and the entertainment industry. Like Enversed from Eindhoven."

Of course Fontys Hogeschool ICT could not be absent at this event. Sjaak Verwaaijen was allowed to demonstrate our Cave, together with a number of students. Visitors could visit this specially developed space using virtual reality-glasses and experience how VR works and what the images look like.

In short: the range of lectures and demonstrations was very wide and certainly worth a visit. Want to know more?
