By | In the news

Laval Virtual

The Dolphin Swim Club was invited to take part in the 20th Laval Virtual, one of the most important events in the world about virtual technologies and uses. 5 Days of great fun! The whole team assisted about 1400 visitors to swim with the wild virtual dolphins. About 600 in the water, with our Wild Dolphin Underwater VR. Again our dolphin friends managed to enchant many people of all ages.  And as a dolphin joke, to finally have people swimming in tanks to meet them, while they themselves stay in their own home, the free oceans of the world.

ACM SIGGRAPH Award

In this week we got honored with the ACM SIGGRAPH Award as well. Above a report by the French M6 TV Channel. Below, you will find more enthusiastic stories by TV channels, newspapers, u-tubers and blogs.
