The interactive VR software is modeled after real world scenarios and randomized each time to reinforce the critical thinking necessary to complete the tasks effectively. Under the hood it is measuring numerous data points and providing scores and feedback to the trainee after each user session. The powerful software is already in use at major utility providers and can be customized for any use case, even for industries outside the utility space such as healthcare, education and industrial training. Digital History Studios - Digital History Studios will be displaying a variety of projects, but most notably, the Berlin Wall Experience for the Vive which was produced for the Newseum in DC. Viewers are brought back in time to the Berlin Wall in the mid 1980’s and can explore various places in both West and East Berlin. There are a variety of interactive elements such as operating a searchlight on top of an observation tower, finding a hidden tunnel to escape to the West and taking a sledgehammer to crack the Wall. Callen Shaw Indie Games - VR Party Club is a party game for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality. Their goal is to build an easy learning VR game where 1-4 players can throw, roll, shoot and slice their way to 1st place, in various board game and mini game environments! VR Party Club was designed for comfortable, intuitive game play to delight both VR veterans and neophytes. With one-button controls and zero-nausea design, VR Party Club would like to become the first true "killer app" for VR. Bully!
