manouVR - Virtual Welding

The Centre for Education and Work (CEW) looked to VR to power a portable, gesture-based tool using tactile controls that could be used for scholastic and/or industry training.  manouVR is a safe and fun way for youth to try their hand at mig-welding, and also as a training tool with the accuracy and feel that professionals demand. 

Electric Monk Media provided R&D, Unity programming, 3D artwork, and project management on this VR application, plus motion control and a custom hardware interface. We demoed several prototypes at events for industry professionals, students and educators, allowing their feedback to inform refinements to the user experience and new features.
