An Infrastructure Construction VR Game

The InfraBIM Open 2020 conference featured top experts, case studies, and solutions for digitalized infrastructure construction. The exhibition area showcased the latest in digital solutions and technologies.

FCG Finnish Consulting Group and Softability Oy had created a virtual reality game that I tried out. You navigate a ship through a lock on the Saimaa Canal and answer questions in order to proceed to the next stage. The VR quiz is a visualization generated from a BIM model that FCG uses in the canal’s lock-lengthening project.

Here’s my short video interview with Mikael Stening at FCG’s exhibition stand.
