The first round of
applications has come to an end and we’re delighted about all the great
applications! We are also excited about the next steps with our partners
and the involved external third parties. In the meantime, we want to
take the opportunity to present our very own Lighthouse Project within
EMIL with the working title “MinoXR”. Find out more about the project in
our Spotlight clip!
project aims at developing a narrative location-based experience (LBX)
that enables its users to immerse into the realms of Greek mythology and
travel back in time via cutting-edge XR-technology. Our overarching
goal is to push existing boundaries and make immersive experiences more
accessible to a wider public by further optimizing it for mobile VR
devices, which are easy to set up in locations like museums, galleries
and theme parks. The ideal is to have the experience run on mobile
hardware, since it is much more affordable, less power-consuming, more
widespread and easier to set up than PCVR gaming.
addressing existing obstacles, “MinoXR” can not only shape the future
of VR-gaming, but also open up new possibilities in political,
historical and other types of education.
