In collaboration with Singtel, one of the largest telcos in Singapore, Hiverlab developed four interactive VR experiences for Singtel's 5G Exhibition Hall, namely, real-time smart city data visualization, remote surgery simulation, smart office visualization, and smart home visualization. The goal is to help visitors better visualise and understand the potential use cases of 5G technology.
The real-time smart city data visualization is a demonstration of immersive digital twin. Based on a 3D model of Singapore, we extract and display real-time geo-spatial data from NEA's (weather) and LTA's (traffic) open-source platform. This dynamic contextual data visualization system is one of the first steps to achieve a more holistic immersive control system in a few years time as the 5G technology advances.
The remote surgery simulation showcases how in the future human can use gestures to control robots remotely to perform complex tasks, based on 5G's low latency characteristic.
The smart office and smart home visualization experiences demonstrates the future possibilities in our daily lives with massive IoT set up.
Huge thanks to the team for working on this. It was really a pleasure working with you. You guys are one of the best vendors I've worked with - the amount of initiative and quality of ideas that come out from the team was really amazing. Not forgetting your speedy turnaround time! So thank you all!

I have worked very successfully with Hiverlab over the past few years on a heritage project based in Cyprus. Hiverlab is the perfect partner for scholars such as myself who are 'content-rich' but less well-versed in the innovative technologies and media to make the work truly impactful on both popular and pedagogical platforms. I will certainly continue to work with them. They are VERY highly recommended!

The advantage of this Storyhive VR programme is that it allows the trainers to communicate with a relatively large class and for the students to interact with one another, which is very difficult in a real-life dive situation. In this particular context, we can train a large number of people, not necessarily just employees, at the same time, yet maintain a level of interaction in instruction that cannot be achieved underwater. The demonstration of the VR prototype has been positive.
