Your 3D application on the biggest VR screen

Dassault Systèmes (who owns Virtools who I work for) is running a challenge called “VR Experience” to produce content for La Geode, the biggest VR screen!

You could win a BARCO stereoscopic projector worth 75,000 euros and 3DVIA Virtools licenses

The application has to be made with Virtools, with some guidelines to have it run both on the web and on VR screens.

The deadline for submission of projects registration (ie not the application) is September 12 2008.

That’s a great way to get recognition of your work and have lots of fun !!


Original, fun and/or educational with a strong interactive dimension, the projects can deal with any of the
following topics:

– History and civilization: A concept based around TROY or the Palace of Versailles is encouraged
– Science and technology: Open
– Human adventure: Open
– Anticipation: Open
