Event Recap

EEVR Launch Party at sTARTUp Day

By september 5, 2021No Comments

EEVR official Launch Party took place during sTARTUPd Day, the largest tech festival in the Baltics held in Tartu, Estonia. The highlight of the party was definitely the premiere of EEVR Launch Video, which showcases six world-class use cases of Virtual Reality by EEVR member companies today. Check it out below! (with English subtitles).

With over 50 attendants enjoying 3 talks, 4 demo booths, food, drink and networking, the event was a great success. Perhaps it was the community missing an actual physical get-together, or the scale of the event possible due to being part of sTARTUp Day festival, but this was the largest turnout in EEVR’s 5-year history. It also set a new quality bar for future EEVR events. Here are a few photos.

The following companies exhibited their VR products in demo booths:

  • Futuclass – Futuclass VR lessons (Quest)
  • Estonian Rescue Board – fire and water safety learning apps (Vive and Quest)
  • Taltech – VR environments developed by students and research teams (Quest)
  • Blueray – time travel to experience the historic Oru Palace of Toila in 1938 (Quest)

Two of three talks given are currently available on EEVR Youtube channel (subscribe!), and linked below.
