The continuing appearance of virtual reality devices, increasingly affordable for all types of users, turns this technology into one of the most prominent trends in the digital economy. This seminar, organized together with The App Date, shows some of the VR applications that are expected to have major impact in the near future and discusses the technological challenges that need to be addressed to provide the best user experience. Speakers: Cristian Domínguez - Virtual Natives Edgar Martín-Blas - New Horizons VR Nicolás Alcalá - Future Lighthouse Óscar Hormigos - The App Date Xavier Conesa - VISYON

http://www.VTTII.com - VIRTSIM is a motion-capture immersive virtual reality simulation system that allows up to 13 people to train together virtually. The virtual reality system allows trainees to perform law enforcement and military combat exercises and move tactically as they would during a live operation. Any location or tactical scenario can be simulated by the software with incredible realistic details. The 3D AAR then provides playback of all actions and shots from every angle, as well as from each participant's individual perspective for feedback and analysis. There is nothing like this on the market - visit http://www.VTTII.com for more info and details.
