Amsterdam Rai: Polar Effect Virtual Reality experience @ the 2015 Hike & Bike Tourism Fair
Things have been moving really quickly here at Polar Effect, so to keep everyone up to date we have some images from our recent 360° presentation at Amsterdam’s Hike and Bike Tourism Fair.
Our first ever trade fair participation went extremely well and was a great experience for us. Polar Effect was stationed at the Cyprus Tourism Organisation stand, where armed with the Oculus Rift headsets, we gave passers by the opportunity to experience panoramic 360° imagery from the historic village of Pedoulas and the achingly beautiful Akamas peninsula.
The response was far better than we ever could have imagined, people were genuinely excited with the technology and amazed at its power to transport you to other places, we even received a number of intriguing invitations to go and capture some other stunning locales (watch this space).
With virtual tourism set to be a huge deal in the coming years, and as the technology continues to come of age, we’re delighted to be here on the front line, giving people experiences they’ll never forget. (video)
