We are virtual reality specialists

The VR agency by the sea

The future has finally arrived!

No longer restricted to the realms of science fiction or academic labs, VR is now affordable for consumers and business and is rapidly redefining our world. 2016 is year zero for consumer VR and already a world of possibilities is opening up for creating exciting new brand experiences.

The empathy machine

Vr is the ultimate first person view and can cultivate empathy for subjects, situations and perspectives in ways that traditional film makers have only dreamed of.

Pick the best headset for the job

At Bigman we have the capability to create immersive media for cheap, mass market devices like google cardboard or Samsung gear VR, but also for high-end headsets like the Oculus rift, HTC Vive or Microsoft HoloLens.

Virtual, Augmented or Mixed?

But what IS Virtual reality?

Regular ‘virtual reality’ is 100% synthetic, digital content where the user forgets the real world and becomes fully present in a digital one.

Augmented reality production

With ‘augmented reality’ we can add digital content to the real world, for example give your audience a cute virtual pet on their desk, float interactive price data around a shop window display or add dynamic virtual sculptures to a company foyer

Our mixed reality studio

Our ‘Mixed Reality’ green-screen studio allows other people to share in the experience, by combining the player with the virtual world, people see more than just an excited person with a piece of plastic on their face.

Architectural VR

Experience your design

Forget scale models or static computer generated images, VR allows your team and investors to immerse themselves in your building before even the foundations have even been dug!

Virtual real estate

With our room scale VR experiences you can actually, physically walk around a 5x5m space, crouch down to see under a table, or stretch up to look over a door frame. This sense of scale is unrivalled by any other type of media.

VR interior design – Customise your space

Change the colours of the walls, move the sofas around or swap kitchen components. VR allows you flexibility with interior design.

Medical VR

Medical training experiences

Train your staff how to respond in an emergency, with highly realistic medical simulations of many different medical emergencies

VR diagnosis

Viewing your data in 2D can be hard to interpret, but a 3D model that you can walk around is much easier to read as a tool for accurate and fast diagnosis.

Virtual treatments

Re-create warzones to treat PTSD, help patients on the autistic spectrum gain empathy for others, or simply create relaxing environments for your patients.

Market Research VR

Gather more data about your customers

In the future nearly all Market research will be done in VR as the quantity and quality of data collection from virtual environments is an order of magnitude better than what can be easily captured in the real world.

Understand your customers

Crunching large quantities of collected data such as eye gaze direction, basket contents and body movements give us a greater understanding of all the factors that influence buying decisions.

Capture each shopping trip in mixed reality

Using our custom Rene mixed reality camera rigs, we are able to produce live video showing the respondent inside the virtual shopping environment, to allow detailed interpretations of key consumer behaviours

VR Games

Step inside the game

Long hailed as the final frontier of gaming, we can now fully immerse ourselves in worlds of pure creativity and delight.

Move your body

Room scale VR technology such as the HTC vive allows us to move in a fun and natural way to walk around, hit opponents, kick balls or bang drums, transporting us into any environment we choose.

Gamerfy your campaign

Got a marketing message that just needs a little oomph or magic? VR is the perfect medium for entertaining your prospective customers, or educating them about your product or service in a fun and enthralling way.

Design In VR

Create your world from within

For CGI geeks like ourselves, architects, automotive designers or anyone else creating spaces or sculpting products, virtual reality is quickly becoming the only way to experience your design as you work.

A paradigm shift for designers

Our old, 2 dimensional interfaces such as mouse, keyboard and monitor are set to melt away as we work in more physical ways that better reflect the full range of expressions of our human bodies. In the virtual world, the ergonomics that define our relationships with our designed environment take on a new level of nuanced sense of scale when we actually stand next right to our creations compared to seeing a flat image on a screen.

VR Wellbeing

Virtual mindfulness

Take a deep breath…VR offers the perfect way to block out those undesired distractions in the real world, allowing us to replace them with gentle relaxation therapies and calm environments.

Hacking consciousness

Virtual reality gives us all the toolset we need to precisely control all stimuli fed to a patient’s brain via their senses, a dream come true for neuroscientists or cognitive scientists.

Mind Bubble

We have developed a VR mindfulness app for the gearVR platform in collaboration with Dr Alastair Goode, coming autumn 2017

VR is new and this gives you a great chance to stand out from your competitors by deploying the latest cutting edge technology on your stand.

So social

Using our proprietary ‘Rene’ mixed reality technology we can show everyone what is going on in VR on a big screen where we see the player mixed into the virtual world. Add hashtags and branding to create fun viral content that reaches far beyond the show floor.
