Stamford Arts Center Reopening
Hiverlab has developed 3 unique Virtual Reality / Augmented Reality experiences for the Stamford Arts Centre reopening. The event aimed to give the general public a better understanding of tradtitional arts.
Based on the latest AR Core technology, the first piece is a AR walking trail, that turns SAC into a immersive digital space where visitors can explore different interactive elements. Once activated, a digital character with an iconic musical instrument will pop up around the space. The visitors can then explore and understand the origin of a traditional performance.
For the second piece, Hiverlab collaborated with Tok Tok Chiang Wayang to produce an VR inside look of a Chinese Opera backstage. This tour experience allows users to teleport into the stage and backstage of Chinese Opera performance without an exclusive pass. The tour shows an exclusive insight of how the performers prepare for a grand show.
Lastly, the third piece is is a Mixed Reality dance where Dancer Serene Tan gracefully dances in a colorful Virtual Reality environment created by Visual Artist Edmund Loh. The performance is accompanied by a live musical performance by a Chinese Orchestra group.
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.
