Presentations of the world’s most innovative achievements in the field of virtual reality, augmented reality and their future applications, Laval Virtual ReVolution is an annual honor of the world’s finest VR projects by Laval Virtual. Laval Virtual ReVolution is the international competition which rewards the most innovating Virtual Reality projects every year since 2006.

Selected by a jury of professionals and scientists, the best projects receive a booth in the Laval Virtual exhibition. These projects, ranging from the most playful to the most scientific, represent the early beginnings of the future of Virtual Reality technologies which could become a part of your future daily life.

Virtual Reality is not only a technology but also a never ending story about the history between computers and humans. We cannot know the ending of this story yet, as we still need to find and walk one of the many possible paths that will lead us to a future navigated by brilliant stars. Future voyagers will continue to stare at those stars along their way. While the Virtual Reality culture can also be built by academic papers or commercial products independently, we would like to suggest a new relation between developmental projects and the general public at on-site demonstrations.

If a project has impact, technology, and persuasiveness, then it might move the general public and change our common senses.

Therefore this means a revolution in the history of Virtual Reality technology.

Share them in this Virtual Reality movement with others from all over the world !



"1+1= Unlimited"

One plus one equals unlimited

Laval Virtual ReVolution 2018 calls for innovative virtual reality demo projects that fall under the theme, “1+1=∞”.

While this may look like an incorrect equation from the standpoint of mathematics, can we outright deny this amazing equation completely?

Year after year, virtual reality continues to be innovated upon but this evolution is not linear. Innovative VR techniques always comes from human senses.

We now know “5 senses” as sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch, but the senses are not summable like the 1 + 1 equation.

Innovative VR projects can demonstrate to the public that the evolution of our models are not as limited as the traditional sense of addition anymore. Please propose to us your amazing phenomenon, as traditional science may not describe your innovation and it may redefine relation of "1+1=" and meanings of virtual reality to the public. There is no limitation, as a future of unlimited possibilities awaits us. 

Professional & Grand Public Demo = ∞

ReVolution is best opportunity to demonstrate your projects to professionals and the general public. 

Current Virtual Reality technology includes computer generated graphics, display technologies, haptics, force feedback and interface design in the context of implementing new experiences that encourage users to use a virtual system to enhance their real, mundane lives. It may be called as entertainment system in current virtual reality. However its function may be linked to humanism which bring us into the next generation of human being.

Share your experience, and proof it in the professional and public during Laval Virtual 2018.
