Spain: MED GAIMS presents holoportation technology at gamification conference “VAG Experience 2021”


Gamification encompasses a wide range of sectors. The VAG 2021 conference, to be held on 1-2 Octover in the city of Amposta, aims to become a reference in the video game industry. It illuminates gaming opportunities in multiple sectors, such as health and culture, which are increasingly becoming important in this field.

In this sense, the i2CAT Foundation is developing a holoportation technology applicable in different scenarios and sectors. During the VAG Experience 2021, the research center will present HoloMIT, a 3D holoconferencing system in augmented reality and 5G. Visitors will experience a holoconference demonstration. They will be fully immersed in a VR/AR/XR world, projecting their volumetric video representation, captured in real-time directly into the scenario.

In the MED GAIMS project framework, i2CAT introduces the holoportation as a novel immersive technology to experience museums and touristic places. The research center is finishing two games with this technology for the Víctor’s Balaguer Museum in Vilanova.
