Acing the Sports Game with the Oculus Rift

Saturday, March 14
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Four Seasons
Ballroom CD
98 San Jacinto Blvd


Since before the soccer World Cup in Brazil, virtual reality has been used to improve soccer players' abilities. We will show you a glimpse of some of the VR tools that the Dutch national soccer team, as well as Dutch teams AJAX and AZ, are using to improve their players. Our engine generates a VR simulation from entire matches, instantly. Imagine switching to yours or a different player’s point of view, bird's eye view, or the opponent's point of view. Visualize the distance between players or have the coach give instructions in VR on where a player should stand. Custom scenarios can be practiced. We will mainly discuss soccer during this talk, with brief sidetracks to other sports. Experience how VR will change the way professional athletes can be trained in the future and how consumers will have an added VR experience. Relevant VR experiences will be synced throughout the presentation to Cardboards provided to you at the venue. Download the app at beyondsports.nl/sxsw.
