The Group awarded with the best idea wins a journey to our project partner Lille University. In Tourcoing the VR Lab with an Open Reality Experience (TORE) facility will be visited.
The Open Reality Experience (TORE) facility is a leading-edge virtual reality equipment enabling an immersive experience of 3D virtual environments. Capable of housing up to 20 people, TORE provides a 180-degree view display : indeed the screen is bent in such a way that it avoids sharp edges, hence offering an unprecedented experience compared to existing immersive rooms. Funded by the EquipEx IrDIVE(Innovation Research in the Digital and Interactive Visual Environments), the ANR (National Agency for Research) and the European Regional Development Fund, TORE is a full-fledged part of the SCV (Sciences et Cultures du Visuel) initiative.
