  • Applying Past Lessons To VR

    Oskar Burman, CEO at Fast Travel Games, delivers a VR Business Session at VR Connects London 2017.

    Fast Travel Games’s Oskar Burman goes through the lessons he’s learned in previous platform shifts, and how those would translate into VR. Having worked with games on a multitude of platforms, and made the shifts successfully from home computer to PC to console to mobile and now to VR, he’s witnessed a lot of patterns, and elements that must be kept in mind when these platform shifts occur. Both from a game design perspective, and from a business perspective.

  • Content Marketing Through VR & AR

    Tracy Spaight, Director of Special Projects at Wargaming VR, delivers a VR Business Session at VR Connects London 2017.

    The Wargaming team is passionate about history. We are committed to ‘getting it right’ in the exacting recreation of each of the tanks, planes, and ships represented in our games. Our players appreciate our attention to historical detail and support our museum partnerships.

    Over the past few years, Wargaming has helped bring history alive by developing a number of virtual reality and augmented reality experiences (mobile apps, AR installations, and 360 VR films) for museums around the world, including the National Museum of the Royal Navy, the RAF Museum, the Tank Museum at Bovington, and Pacific Battleship Center.

    Through these collaborations we have helped to solve some of the outstanding challenges faced by museums today – to wit, how to reach ‘digital natives’, who grew up in a different media environment than baby boomers, and how to make inaccessible areas of the museum (such as the engine room of a destroyer) accessible.

    This talk explores why we work with museums, the challenges of doing so, and the benefits (to both parties) of these exercises in content marketing and corporate social responsibility.
