WorldViz exposed filmmakers to fully immersive wide-area walking virtual reality this weekend at Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Many of them had only experienced seated VR before they stepped into the WorldViz exhibit area. As film directors begin to form ideas about how immersive VR will change filmic storytelling, WorldViz announces its new enterprise-class VizMove Walking VR solution, which is used for a broad range of applications including design review, architecture visualization, and research.
Professor Jeremy Bailenson, a leading VR researcher and the mastermind behind Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab, had asked WorldViz to demonstrate its cutting-edge VR solutions in support of his presentation at Tribeca Talks: Imagination. The VizMove Walking VR solution, which runs on the Vizard VR toolkit in combination with our PPT motion tracking system, and the Oculus Rift VR headset, provided festival-goers with the opportunity to walk (and fly) through immersive worlds. We hope our guests had as much fun as we did!
