KLM ROYAL DUTCH 787 VR EXPERIENCE
KLM Royal Dutch 787 VR Experience

KLM was looking for an innovative way of presenting the new aircraft and its special features to the public. The Virtual Dutch Men created the ‘Royal Dutch 787 VR Experience’.

Jacob Post, Flight Innovation Manager of KLM: “The announcement of the first KLM Boeing 787 Dreamliner was a great moment for KLM to experiment with virtual reality. The new aircraft has so many new features, so we had to look for a way to present it proudly. So, therefor we created the ‘Royal Dutch 787 VR Experience’.”

VR DEMO SUITE

We always test our VR experiences extensively, before it goes to our clients, just to make sure that everything works. We like creating VR environments and love to actually spend time in them. Our VR Demo Suite is our favorite place to experience our virtual environments in all their glory!

REVIEW: CRESCENT BAY - PROVING VR PRESENCE

Oculus Connect had many surprises for us in store. One of them was trying out their latest handmade prototypes. During our stay in Los Angeles – on Saturday 20th of September – we tried out the Oculus Crescent Bay prototype as one of the very first developers to ever experience it. During this 10 minute demo we got to experience the true form of VR presence. Of course we made a review of the demos that we experienced on this awesome device.

We are excited to announce that we will be traveling towards Hollywood to visit Oculus Connect, a developer conference that brings together engineers, designers, and creatives from around the world to share and collaborate in the interest of creating the best virtual reality experiences possible. Attendees will be the first to learn about upcoming Oculus technology, with sessions and workshops led by Oculus engineers and industry pioneers. Developers at the event will also have opportunities to receive design and engineering feedback directly from the Oculus team in hands-on labs.

WOODCOASTER ON NATIONAL TELEVISION

Dutch TV host Matthijs van Nieuwkerk tried out our Woodcoaster during his talkshow “De wereld draait door” (Literally: The world keeps twisting). Yesterday it was announced that Facebook has bought Oculus VR for $ 2 billion. At the moment ‘Virtual Reality’ is nothing new, but all the predecessors to the Rift are not proven so successful. This is where the Oculus Rift is different. Experts, fans and authoritative media like the New York Times all praised the Rift. The possibilities seem to have no end with the VR goggles. Will you swim with a group of dolphins? Perform together with the Stones at Pinkpop? Or perhaps experience what it is like to fly? It’s all possible!
At the table: Alexander Klöpping to tell us whether we have to be happy or anxious about the arrival of these ultramodern goggles. You can watch the video here (English subtitles).

TEMPLECOASTER ON NATIONAL TELEVISION

Dutch TV host Cilly Dartell tries out our Templecoaster during her talkshow “Studio MAX Live”. Watch her scream her way through the dark corridors of the old temple as she demonstrates what effect a Virtual Reality rollercoaster can provoke in the human mind. Dartell is accompanied by Remco Bron – entrepreneur, speaker and retailer – who explains the technology behind it. Bron has always been fascinated about how the Internet, mobile, wearable computing and everything in between has an impact on people, businesses, education and society.
