Come join us for a Virtual Reality experience this January at Shoonya!
Swissnex India and Artanim in collaboration with Shoonya 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.
Open to all!
16th January (3:30pm- 7pm)
17th January (1:00pm- 6:00pm)
PLEASE NOTE: The individual experience itself is 10 minutes. The tickets are availaible online. Each half-hour slot has 6 available spots. Exact timings within your booked slot will be based on a first-come-first-served basis.

// Ground-breaking technology 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.
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’.
The best in cinematic virtuality and immersive experiences awaits you in Bangalore, watch this space for further details.
