The VR European Congress 2016 was held at the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw on 3-4 November. This was the first event of this scale organised in Poland, dedicated to the rapidly developing virtual reality (VR) technology. For more information about the congress, see here: http://vrcongress.pl/o-kongresie/?lang=en.
Among the presenters was Marcin Wisniewski, Director of Sales at the Reinvent partner i3D. In his presentation he emphasized that VR is more than games and entertainment. VR makes it possible to realistically represent places that are difficult to access or unsafe, e.g. for employee training. Businesses are increasingly using VR for training, sales, simulations and prototyping. Marcin presented some interesting case studies including from the oil industry, education and heavy industry.
