Virtual Fantasy is a reference student competition in Europe in the field of virtual and augmented reality technologies. It aims to promote the use of emergent technologies and rewards the best student projects. The competition is divided in two categories:
Virtual Fantasy - Demos: exhibition of the best student projects of the year at the heart of the show among virtual reality professionals.
Virtual Fantasy - Limited time: development of a virtual/augmented reality application within 30h.
On the occasion of the twentieth edition, a trophy will be awarded to the school having won the most victories in the last five years. Two victories are still possible during the 2018 edition, the title is still at stake!
Opening Registration : September 2017
Deadline to register : 15th of February 2018
Virtual Fantasy - Demos is a competition with a free subject. It gives students or young researchers the possibility to bring and show an application they developed during their formation and using virtual technologies.
It is a perfect occasion to promote and show your work to a professional audience in a free booth at the heart of Laval Virtual.
Three awards will be given by our jury :
- Winner Virtual Fantasy - Demos
- Special mention artistic direction
- Special mention interactivity
The winners will receive an award during the Laval Virtual Awards ceremony, in front of more than 600 professionals.
Each year a team participating in the "Demo" category is selected by an independent jury to participate to the International Virtual Reality Contest in Japan.
"Limited Time" Category
Virtual Fantasy - Limited Time is a 30 hours hackaton. Each team develops a real time 3D app. Every year our technological sponsor lends Virtual / Augmented Reality devices and the contestants can discover and imagine their concepts with that technology (Leap Motion, Tobii, HTC Vive...). This challenge is an incredible test for your technical expertise, your ability to work with other people and go beyond your comfort zone!
Our jury will give two awards:
- winner of Virtual Fantasy - Limited Time
- special "coup de coeur" given by our technological sponsor
The winning team will be awarded during the Laval Virtual Awards ceremony in the presence of more than 600 professionals.
