The company even created a customised and interactive VR game for the show, where players defend the Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai area from bots.

One of the firm’s applications allows users to take a picture of a real estate project and an augmented reality scale model of the project emerges, outlining dimensions of a property both inside and out, so buyers can visualise exactly what they are getting for their money.

Giga Works – Visitors to the stand of this Virtual Reality film studio, which is offering 360º capture, virtual reality experience, and customised GigaBox cardboards, were provided the opportunity to take a seat in a virtual recreation of the famous Formula Rossa rollercoaster – the world’s fastest rollercoaster – at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
