We design and develop custom extended reality applications (XR). Depending on the app’s scope we make use of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality. We also develop custom software for desktop or mobile, interactive installations that incorporate physical elements, also make use of body tracking devices and other sensors.
We don’t want to exaggerate, so we will refrain from writing “pretty much everyone”, and refer instead to the fields of Engineering, Construction and Architecture, as much as Maritime and Naval Services, but also Research, Medicine and Pharmaceutics, and of course Advertising and Marketing, and last but not least Education and Culture.
Apart from the cliche “the future is here”, we have thought of a bunch of reasons why these technologies are essential in the aforementioned fields. The sense of immersion and presence is an excellent boost in educational applications, as well as training and therapy oriented simulators, helping users assimilate information…
We are ViRA, a software development company based in Greece. Our team embarked on this journey in 2016, and since then our mission has been to establish the use of extended reality in a variety of fields where interactivity and immersion provide innovative solutions.
A global event for game developers! The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is realized every year at the end of January. It provides anyone a unique chance to challenge their creativity, by developing a game (video game, board game etc) within 48 hours, based on a theme which is globally identical and announced at the beginning of the event by the central organizing commitee in California. The Global Game Jam is the biggest physical game jam globally. The main organizer of Global Game Jam [Athens] is GIFTED Hellas since 2013, whereas since 2018 ViRA has been co-organizing.
