DigiArt at Researchers Night, inviting people to 3D virtual tours and 3D designing space
On Friday September 27th, DigiArt had the opportunity to be one of the main exhibitors in Thessaloniki’s Researchers’ Night. A crowd of teenagers and adults with enthusiasm about science and technology flooded in Thessaloniki’s Concert Hall to meet and experience futuristic technologies and experienced researchers. DigiArt was there with one of the main exhibits inviting people to play a 3D game that immersed them in the Scladina Cave using Oculus Rift, as well as designing and 3D printing their own piece of art while immersed in a 3D creativity space with Oculus Medium and Oculus touch.
It was great to see the surprise in the face of people while and after playing the virtual tour and the creativity game. They were amazed by the level of immersion offered by the DigiArt software and hardware. It was not a surprise to see the people queuing-up for playing the games and get really excited when making a 3D model or a travelling along the virtual cave. It was an exhausting day for Mklab-ITI crew, but full of energy and enthusiasm coming from our young visitors.
