Virtual Reality

When Reality Just Won’t Do.

Want to enter the innards of a gearbox? Excavate a part of Pompeii? Or take a look at earth from an astronaut’s vantage point? If the answer is yes, we are ready to beam you up! We build no less than an entire world around your product or desired subject matter for your target group to dive into (and splash around in). Sounds too good to be true? In fact, our VR has snags of its own: people always doggedly refuse to resurface! Long waiting lines are to be expected. And there even have been reports of addiction amongst users ...

Features dreams are made of:

Cordless VR headsets: once you have drifted through a coastal area as a seahorse, you probably don’t want to hit shore all of a sudden. That’s why our VR headsets offer up to 10 square meters range of motion. And that’s really a lot of space, not only for a seahorse.

High-quality hands-on content: Houston, we have no problem! The control works so intuitively that it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to operate it. And with one of our controllers, users can also effortlessly reach for the stars.

Efficient 3D modelling: our Unity 3D development environment really is the land of opportunity. But of course, your budget might beg to differ. Therefore, our 3D artists do not create everything from scratch, but instead use preexisting content as much as possible to keep the costs low.

Well thought-out concept: We boldly go where ... man has gone before, and we seek out familiar worlds, ones we know how to control. Together we translate your ideas into immersion without loosing the grip on reality: right from the start we’ll always let you know what’s possible – and what is not.

360°support: Even in the real world we will not let you down. Our service comprises on‑site support of your VR station and staff training. And if we really cannot be there physically, we are happy to support you via remote access.

Convince and baffle your customers: open up an entirely new entrance to your brand world and product universe by means of innovative technologies

Your USP on every trade show: Facilitate your visitors’ immersive experience in the universe of your products

A lot of visitors at a trade show don’t have any previous VR knowledge and hence will keep a positive and lasting memory of this special experience at your trade fair booth. Garamantis provides all-round concepts built on years of experience and tailored exactly to your products and your brand. These include cutting-edge VR headsets optimized for use on trade shows as well as a top-notch VR environment (software). From Garamantis you get the full package – from the first idea up to implementation at a trade fair.

Immersive and multi-faceted: customized software creates entirely new possibilities for product promotion

A professionally crafted VR offers a multitude of possibilities for the presentation of your products. By virtue of an immersive experience, users get a fundamentally new and different understanding of your entire product range. For instance, in a VR they can take a virtual walk through large industrial machinery plants, immerse themselves in minuscule mechanical gear or processes, or pay a virtual visit to far away places or project sites. Thanks to wireless VR headsets and the resulting large freedom of movement (up to 10 x 10 m) as well as several options for manual interactivity, your client immediately engages with the virtual environment and independently and inquisitively explores the surroundings. For example, he or she can design, configure and use products on offer – without the actual physical presence of these products.

A demonstration of your innovativeness: present your business and your products by means of groundbreaking technologies

With a VR station at your trade fair booth, you promote yourself as a progressive business capable of applying modern technology in a visionary context. By selecting the optimal hardware, we minimize the efforts necessary on-site and provide users with appliances that can be used intuitionally. Your products will always be at the very center of this impressive experience – either in a playful or in a more realistic setting, or even reduced to their essentials – depending on your desired concept. All this allows you to have immediate creative impact on the design of your visitors’ and potential clients’ impressions and experience, right down to the last detail. We contribute our expertise, experience and creativity to your project in such as manner as to elicit the maximum gasp of surprise.

Watch out! Potential pitfalls best to be avoided in the use of VR installations

  • The purchase of VR hardware and a professionally designed VR environment is rather pricey. If you decide to spend this kind of money on a VR station, you should have it in mind for permanent, long-running and flexible use in your entrepreneurial context.
  • The expenditure in staff and technical support necessary at the VR terminal itself is not to be underestimated: at least one person should be present at every VR station to explain its features and assist people in its usage. Therefore, it’s strongly recommended to carefully choose the trade show as well as  identify the audience most likely to benefit from this particular trade fair highlight in advance.
  • The number of simultaneous users of a VR environment is very limited, hence also bystanders should be able to follow the events inside the VR on large extra screens.
  • An innovative technology does not make up for lack of good and interesting content – the expectations are high: an unprofessional overall concept, VR software, or hardware will most likely result in disappointment on the user’s part.

A sound concept is fundamental to success: when it comes to VR projects, we keep a particularly keen eye on the following aspects:

  • A clear message: Before one can launch into the planning process, the VR’s target audience, message, and desired outcome have to be established. What sort of impression do you want its users to get, and what are the desired next steps to happen at the trade fair booth?
  • Generation and adaptation of content: Designing and modelling a highly detailed custom-made 3D VR environment is the most elaborate and complex part of the entire project. For this reason, we like to use and integrate whatever pre-existing 3D content is available. The other models required we either purchase at a reasonably low price, or our own 3D artists design them from scratch. Thanks to a clear concept, we always take the most cost- and time-efficient path.
  • Well-thought-out control: No matter if there’s one or two manual controllers – in any case, the interaction with the VR must be designed as simple and intuitive as possible for its users to feel instantly “at home”. The 3D environment and the interactivity options should be coordinated and harmonized down to the last detail.
  • Wireless VR headsets: The use of corded VR headsets is to be avoided at all costs, as this entails all kinds of disadvantages and detriments to the experience. Instead, the VR headsets employed should either be entirely independent and equipped with built‑in processors and sensors, or  their data transfer to the PC unit should work via wireless transmission.

Klimawandel 360°

StartingUp, May 2020

Virtual Reality, infrared lights, and odor‑emanating nozzles facilitate this omni sensory 5‑minute trip to regions where climate change already affects people’s lives. […] With VR, even journeys into the past or into the future are no longer a problem.
Klimawandel in der Kuppel

Berliner Zeitung, 2/26/2020

Visitors to the Green Week can experience how climate change is changing people’s lives in Madagascar today – until Sunday in a so-called climate bubble. A seven-minute film takes you to the island in the Indian Ocean in a dome-shaped tent. The special thing: With virtual reality glasses, you can look around freely in the film, as if you were really on site.

At the Green Week, visitors to the stand of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development can travel to Madagascar via virtual reality in a “climate dome”, where the consequences of global warming can already be clearly felt.
Klimawandel hautnah

Märkische Oderzeitung, 1/16/2020

Integrating a Deep Space 8K into the newly refurbished Sinaloa Science Center in Cualicán as its highlight and centerpiece has been quite a challenge, on various levels. Under these difficult circumstances, Garamantis not only proved themselves one of our most reliable partner businesses but, with their outstanding commitment, flexibility, and professional expertise, were a cornerstone of the project’s success.

Michael Mondria, Senior Director Ars Electronica Solutions

In a 360-degree video, visitors were given an insight into the living conditions and challenges of the local people via VR glasses. They not only saw and heard how the inhabitants of the African island state dealt with climate change, but also felt the heat and dry air in the steppe, or the cool ocean breezes on the coast.

Even on the EUREF campus, the sun does not always shine. That’s why it’s great that our many national and international guests can go on a gasometer tour throughout the year. It’s also great fun with VR glasses in the Garamantis showroom. The EUREF campus is a real future destination!

Again, the technical realization of the 360-degree climate dome for the BMZ was super with Garamantis. Technically, qualitatively, innovatively and humanly a pleasure!

Stefan Trabant, Managing Director Creation at SUPER an der Spree

Up to now, VR has been difficult in the event context, as it usually only offers experiences for individuals. The climate dome allows several people to immerse themselves in virtual reality at the same time.
