Igloo Vision creates virtual reality set pieces on a large scale with the goal to get as close to one big VR headset as possible for groups of up to 750 people!

In April, Shropshire-based immersive technology startup Igloo Vision announced that it raised £435,000 in funding with the government’s Enterprise Investment Scheme.

Igloo Vision DomeThis funding will be used not only to develop its existing software and refine its product, but also to improve its range of immersive video conferencing techniques, which it developed in response to the coronavirus to help teams collaborate more effectively while remote working.

Igloo creates virtual reality setpieces on a large scale, with 360-degree domes and wrap-around screens. The idea is to get as close to one big VR headset as possible for groups of up to 750 people.

These can be used to simulate environments and situations in order to train people for specific, perhaps dangerous tasks, to educate, or to simply familiarise people with a place or system, etc.; they can bring a vision to life so your team/investors/clients can see it as clearly as you; they can be used at parties and events to add another dimension to the entertainment, or to engage and inspire the attendees.

For a better idea of how Igloo Vision can be used not only for entertainment and education but practical, money-saving business, they have written this case study blog post about Wessex Water used the technology to help with a £50m project in Somerset.

Igloo put into their unique VR a 3D model of the site created with data from ground-penetrating radar, drone surveys, and laser scans, allowing teams to walk through the proposed site.

They say that this aided with design coordination, stakeholder buy-in, and plant operability reviews and could have saved the project up to £300,000. Alternatively, you could have a nice, sunny field projected into your fallout bunker.
