Wearing headsets custom designed by Vrvana, Telefilm Canada was out on the streets of Cannes today promoting Canadian innovation in Virtual Reality, as part of its #VueSurCanada (Eyes on Canada) series.

Modelled off Vrvana’s Totem headset, the demo units provided to Telefilm Canada point to our enhanced future reality. The Totem headset has powerful front facing cameras that allow users to see what is happening around them while interacting in blended worlds that mix the real and the virtual.

Two well dressed hosts, wearing Vrvana branded empty headsets (no electronics), spent the day inviting people into the Canadian pavilion showing of virtual reality.

Then later in the month, Vrvana is proud to present at VR Expo SVVR April 23rd – 24th.

As we approach the first round of Totem headsets being released to developers this summer, Vrvana will be showing off Totem technology at E3 and AWE in June. Contact us to arrange a meet up!
