'BRIDGES' HORIZON 2020 RESEARCH PROJECT
BRIDGES (A hyBRID (physical-diGital) multi-user Extended reality platform as a stimulus for industry uptake of interactive technologieS) project proposes to bring a holistic solution to the market for (remote and co-located) group interaction in room-scale immersive eXtended Reality (XR) environments that blend the physical and virtual space.
The BRIDGES solution is based on the existing platform Immersive DeckⓇ, which will be further researched and developed into a turn-key, flexible and scalable product that can find applications in different industries.
The project will carry out extensive and comprehensive research focusing on the areas of industrial training and informal learning/edutainment with the real world settings. Bolt Virtual will create the virtual reality multisensory experience “A Day in an Athenian House” of the 5th century BC to be installed at the Foundation of Hellenic World, while the Project will also create virtual reality firefighters’ training at the international Airports of Athens and Berlin.
