This year’s China Hi-Tech Fair (CHTF) 2015, which took place from November 16-21 in Shenzhen, China, focused on Industry 4.0 and green development. The tradeshow floor was buzzing with activity each day including a steady stream of traffic through the VIA booth.
The main draw in our booth was the chance to experience Virtual Reality (VR) firsthand with the inclusion of an HTC Vive live demo. Visitors had the chance to prepare a meal in a virtual kitchen or go on an undersea adventure, where one could swim around a shipwreck and interact with marine life, including an enormous whale. Each experience was streamed in real-time and displayed on a massive 8-panel VIA Video Wall allowing those in the crowd to get a taste of the action. The demo was a great success and provided a catalyst in thinking how this emerging technology could be used in future applications beyond consumer use.
Throughout the rest of our booth we had a wide variety of VIA Enterprise IoT platforms, systems and solutions on display with live demos targeted at key verticals including Smart Retail, Smart Industry and Smart City applications which attracted a great deal of interest from potential customers.
