In 3 years, virtual reality companies in Vancouver have grown from 15 to 200. One of the fastest and largest virtual reality hubs in the world, Vancouver-based virtual reality companies have been paving the way for recent advancements in the VR/AR industry: from applications that let individuals walk around virtual real estate to holographic representations of brain scans.
With new Vancouver-based virtual reality companies, which seem to be popping up every day - the VR/AR association in partnership with the Vancouver Economic Comission, CreativeBC and Gowling WLG, created a extensive infographic to visualize Vancouver's virtual reality hub (courtesy of http://www.vancouvereconomic.com)
Our Favorite Vancouver VR Companies
Since 2014, Llamazoo has been developing award-winning 3D visualizations solutions across the globe, from the University of Pennsylvania to tier 1 mining companies. One of their pieces of software, EasyAnatomy is a 3D learning tool that allows veterinary students and educates reduce reliance on cadaver dissection, while making the learning process to do so engaging and accessible. MineLife VR, another proprietary software of theirs', is a mine planning process that centralizes mining data into an interactive virtual reality experience, which has proven to be incredibly informative and useful for non-technical stakeholders.
CognitiveVR began their journey in 2015 with a goal to change the way human behavior data is analyzed. Since then, CognitiveVR has built a platform that measures, aggregates and analyzes data from VR, AR and MR experiences - and generates a report with actionable insights.. For example, their platform SceneExplorer synthesizes visualizations of human behavior in the 3 dimensional context in which they occur. This technology allows their clients to identify important insights within their virtual reality/augmented reality applications and develop hypothesis on VR and augmented human interaction
