[ TOPICS ] 2019.03.22 : Technical cooperation: Prototypes at SXSW 2019

We provide technical cooperation from planning to technical verification, VR presentation support, CG production, editing, recording for content “Haptics VR Theater ME-HADA” that utilizes tactile system “Comptics” (*) under research and development by Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT).

This content is a prototype of “a new visual experience” skin perception VR “that integrates VR and tactile sensation, which is being developed by a joint team of NTT and  TOHOKUSHINSHA FILM CORPORATION, and NIBAN-KOBO Productions Corp.


It is exhibited at the official event “Trade Show” in “South by Southwest 2019″ (SXSW 2019), the world’s largest business and content festival with the theme of music, film and interactive held in Austin, Texas, USA each year. During the show, we received high attention from all over the world, and a lot of feedback.
