Yme Canter-Visscher from CleVR specializes in creating complete and customized Virtual Reality (VR) solutions. CleVR delivers interactive custom built VR software and hardware for a wide range of purposes in the (Mental) Health Care sector (such as fear of heights, fear of flying, Psychosis and Social Phobia) and training sector, where the user is able to interact with the computer in a natural and intuitive way.

Roos Pot-Kolder from Parnassia GGZ Den Haag, is using an application made by CleVR and is presenting the best test results.

Benno Brado and Marijke Sjollema from The Dolphin Swim Club Swimming and meeting with dolphins and whales appeals to almost everyone’s imagination. People who have experienced it speak of an indescribable feeling. With the arrival of the technology of Virtual Reality, a new ocean of possibilities has opened up. Instead of bringing people to the wild dolphins, we can now bring the dolphins to them.

It is a versatile addition to an athlete’s regular training, not only for improving technique, but also for focus and mental preparation. In the demo you will be standing on a tennis court or a softball field and experience various aspects of the game. A Microsoft Kinect tracks your movements and a Samsung Gear VR lets you experience the training. 

6. The Grocery Store. Using HTC Vive Pre you can walk around and play around with the various objects in the grocery store. Pascal Serranes

7. Interactive agent. Using the Kinect, a computer controlled human agent will scan and react on his environment. Pascal Serranes

8. Improve your speaking skills as Speech Center coaches you through a hostile audience and scanning attention around the room.

Let’s create a great meetup together!

"To begin with, Virtual Reality is a part of computer science and it represents a new approach to computer science. Instead of treating the computer as a box that's out there that is supposed to accomplish something, you put a human being in the center and say, "Let's look at the human being closely. Let's see how people perceive the world or how they act. Let's design a computer to fit very closely around them, like a glove, you might say. Let's match up the technology to exactly what people are good at.""
Jaron Lanier, 1992
