swissnex India and Artanim present ‘Inside Real Virtuality’, a multi-user immersive platform combining a 3D environment which can be experienced through a VR headset with a real life stage setup.

‘Inside Real Virtuality’ – Substantial research by Artanim 

This ground breaking technology is developed from extensive research undertaken in the last four years by Artanim. This is currently the only solution available offering a “matrix-like” degree of immersion over a large area, up to hundreds of square meters. Users are tracked by a motion capture system allowing them to see their own bodies and move physically in the virtual environment.

A once in a lifetime experience, Real Virtuality allows users to become immersed in a VR scene by walking, running, interacting with physical objects and meeting other people, unlike other static position VR systems. Because movements of users and their corresponding avatars exactly match in the 3D environment and are streamed to the users with very low latency, there is no discomfort or interface required. The bodies of the visitors work as the interface.

Accolades for Real Virtuality

This project was shortlisted among the three finalists of the Immersive Realities (AR/VR) contest at SIGGRAPH Los Angeles 2015, awarding the best augmented/virtual reality experiences possible using today’s technologies. It was showcased at the Sundance Film Festival and Cannes Festival in 2016, going on to win the Laval Virtual 2016 Award in the category ‘3D Games and Entertainment’.

Experience Real Virtuality for yourself!

‘Inside Real Virtuality’ brings together a day of virtual reality demos offering each participant a uniquely breathtaking experience, that has been enthralling audiences worldwide.

‘What’s cooler than VR? Not much except maybe Real Virtuality by Artanim.’
James Finn, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Communication, 20th Century Fox

‘The most daringly original VR presentation I’ve seen, “Real Virtuality” shows how big the medium can be.’
Steven Zeitchik, Journalist, Los Angeles Times
