Each year a team participating in the "Demo" category is selected by an independent jury to participate to the International Virtual Reality Contest  in Japan.




"Limited Time" Category

Virtual Fantasy - Limited Time is a 30 hours hackaton. Each team develops a real time 3D app. Every year our technological sponsor lends Virtual / Augmented Reality devices and the contestants can discover and imagine their concepts with that technology (Leap Motion, Tobii, HTC Vive...). This challenge is an incredible test for your technical expertise, your ability to work with other people and go beyond your comfort zone!

Our jury will give two awards:
