Team Lavalanche (Benjamin BERGER, Terence DESCLAIN, Quentin LE ROUX and Felix RAYMOND, 3rd year interaction design) wins the limited time competition at the 2012 international virtual reality event. Mathieu Tessier, 5th year student in Virtual Reality, was also singled out in the demo category for the collective project “Petits Chevaux”, developed by a student team from Arts et Métiers (a French higher education institution specializing in mechanical and industrial engineering).
Team Lavalanche, shortlisted from several teams put forward by the school, were particularly successful at this 2012 edition of Laval Virtual, the international virtual reality event. The Virtual Fantasy student competitions, which include a limited time competition and a demonstration category, were particularly popular this year with 10 teams competing over two days of in-depth work. The aim: to develop an original virtual reality application integrating a mystery object, chosen at random… This year our competitors were given three foam balls, which they cleverly integrated into an application involving body movement.
Their original approach won the team of designers first prize in the category at the Laval Virtual Awards ceremony on Thursday, April 28, 2012. The prizes were presented by Christophe Clergeau, vice-president of the Pays de la Loire region.
Another distinction in the demo category for the “Petits Chevaux” project developed by a group of Master’s students from Arts et Métiers ParisTech Angers, including Mathieu Tessier, 5th year student in Virtual Reality.
