Description

ICE Project at the Skills Show at the NEC in Birmingham

With more than 70,000 visitors, the Skills Show is the nation's largest skills and careers event, helping to shape the future of the next generation. Over three days, the CITB booth welcomed the visitors with various simulators including our work-at-height simulator. Jamie Warren, a CITB colleague who run our system there told us that he "plonked the headset on someone’s head well in excess of 1000 times [...] heard a lot of `Wows' [...] was punched twice (as people lost balance on the virtual roof) and experienced a few screams". This once again proves that such a system can realistically immersive anybody in any environment.
