In the frame of our VR-related Master’s Degree, Quentin Moreau and I conceived a virtual reality experience that took in an dreamlike world inspired from Jules Vernes's numerous sci-fi universes. The experience was to be showcased at the Digital Week in Nantes. We decided to picture Nantes itself as a luxurious hovering-city amongst the clouds, up in the sky. The user is an explorer travelling around the city with a steampunk-like hot air balloon. Over the course of one week, almost 900 persons tried the experience and most of the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Overall, it was a unique chance to show our work to a wide audience and introduce it to the virtual reality technology.
I designed a large part of the concept and the 3D world. The project was first to be displayed in a Cave environment but I also ported the application on Oculus DK2 in order to make the project in an even-more immersive environment. Eventually, I shot and edited a video that summed up the event.
