VR holodeck instead of VR glasses
Ehrhardt + Partner, a leading international specialist for logistics solutions with 14 locations and more than 500 employees received a new VR room with extensive equipment – from 360° projection technology to state-of-the-art conference technology. The so-called “holodeck” allows customers, among other things, to plan and experience their new storage halls virtually and life-sized.
The room facilitates experiencing content usually viewed using 360 degree VR glasses within a room – thanks to all-round projection onto four walls.
