During the conference, Noitom will demo the Alice Space Earthlight: Lunar Mission experience made possible with a platform of high fidelity hybrid optical-inertial tracking, props, and virtual reality backpacks and goggles that can be adapted to other real-world settings for training, simulations and education.
Noitom will be at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando, Florida from November 27 to November 30th. I/ITSEC is the world's largest modeling, simulation, and training conference. I/ITSEC is organized by the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), which promotes international and interdisciplinary cooperation within the fields of modeling and simulation (M&S), training, education, analysis, and related disciplines at this annual meeting.
In 2016, Noitom launched Project Alice—their multi-user, virtual reality solution utilizing motion capture, physical props and a large tracking space to deliver high quality, immersive environments. Since then, the motion capture technology company has continued to expand into the realm of simulation with virtual and mixed reality experiences. Project Alice delivers the complete software and hardware components for businesses to create their own user experience. Now with Alice Space, Noitom has created another out-of-home VR and mixed reality platform.
Noitom will attend the conference with its space exploration simulation turnkey platform, Alice Space. Conceived as a complete hardware and content package, Alice Space allows venues like museums and science centers to offer their audiences realistic and immersive experiences in a simulated outer space and moon setting.
During I/ITSEC, Noitom will feature a demo version of Earthlight: Lunar Mission—billed as humanity’s first step on the mission to explore and settle other worlds. It is the first of a planned six interactive mixed reality experiences being released through 2020 that will take players from the Earth’s Moon to Jupiter’s icy Europa.
With original and bi-annually updated content created by Opaque Space in collaboration with NASA, Alice Space packages offer a turnkey solution based on Project Alice’s proprietary high fidelity hybrid optical-inertial tracking, and includes virtual reality backpacks and goggles for up to six players. With a tracking space of 7m by 10m, players can move freely and interact with one another as well as with physical objects. Alice Space gives operators uninterrupted, continuous play with up to three sessions per hour.
“Our Project Alice and Alice Space solutions offers the advantage of being built from the ground up with everything needed to create custom interactive experiences,” says Roch Nakajima, president of Noitom International. “And what we’re doing with Alice Space is giving companies of all kinds the means to take their audiences—whether they be trainees, students or educators—the ability to share a captivating yet accurate outer space experience that simulates the astronaut’s point-of-view. Both of these platforms were designed to be affordable and available for a long-term basis.”
Alice Space is available for order with the first installations slated for January 2018. The turnkey Alice Space package for 6 players lists for USD $199,000. In addition, a monthly subscription and maintenance fee of USD $6,000 will include new content every six months and limited equipment protection. Interested parties are invited to contact Noitom for detailed specifications.
I/ITSEC is taking place at the Orlando Orange County Convention Center. Noitom will be located at #Booth 2671 on the I/ITSEC conference floor, next to the STEM Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Pavilion. They will be exhibiting Alice Space from November 27-30. For more information about I/ITSEC, please visit http://www.iitsec.org/.
