Immersive VR Education have released their teaser trailer for the ‘1943: Berlin Blitz’ VR experience.
The Waterford based company, and its founders Sandra and David Whelan successfully won a commission from the BBC Northern Ireland’s ‘Rewind’ archive innovation team, in conjunction with the BBC’s central VR Hub, to work on a Lancaster Bomber VR experience.
‘1943: Berlin Blitz’ puts viewers in the shoes of BBC war correspondent Wynford Vaughan-Thomas, and allows them to retrace his journey on a genuine bombing raid to Berlin at the height of the Second World War.
Commenting about the project, Sandra Whelan, Co-founder of Immersive VR Education said,
“The Berlin Blitz was an exciting project for us and working with BBC Northern Ireland’s ‘Rewind’ archive innovation team, and the BBC’s central VR Hub has been a fantastic experience. Initiatives like this really allow us to move forward on our primary goal, which is to bring immersive technologies such as AR & VR to distance learning, and to transform the ways in which people all over the world learn about and experience events, both past and present.”
Pre IPO, Immersive VR Education had successfully raised €1.3m from a number of private investors, including Suir Valley Ventures, Kernel Capital Venture Funds and Enterprise Ireland. Immersive VR Education is now a publicly listed company on the London Stock Exchange AIM and Irish Stock Exchange (Euronext Dublin) ESM with a market cap £37 million and has grown its team from 4 to 34.
