Virtual Flight Lab

Air New Zealand

Working closely with Air New Zealand, we imagined some of the most innovative possibilities for passenger flight as part of the airline's 75th Anniversary Exhibition at TePapa. All wrapped up in a virtual reality experience on a scale never seen before in New Zealand. Using this technology allowed us to bring the future to the present, one where the whole cabin transforms into a lush forest, seats turn into deckchairs on a beach and passengers buy luxury goods. We also designed and programmed the software behind the experience that kept the 12 headsets and computers playing smoothly and in sync throughout the six month long public exhibition.
