IVRC: International Collegiate Virtual Reality Contest
Sunday, 10 August 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Vancouver Convention Centre, ACM SIGGRAPH Theater, West Building, Room 210
This event gathers attendees interested in interactive techniques in education and IVRC2014, the 22nd annual competition. Come and see this year’s competitors and student innovation from the entire world.
Welcome to IVRC!
IVRC is the acronym of “International collegiate Virtual Reality Contest”, which has been held since 1993 and is the contest of Interactive products using advanced technologies such as virtual reality and robots. Our English name changed for internationalization in 2004, because we began to invite awarded teams from the French VR contest “Laval Virtual”.
When you hear the words such as “Virtual Reality” and “robot”, you should feel that special expensive machines are nessesary to realize them. Though, there are many ideas which can be actualized only with handmade machines. The main purpose of this contest is for participants to gain deeper understanding of and familiarity with interactive technologies through activities such as planning interactive systems, making devices themselves, and improving quality of their contents.
IVRC is not only a contest, but also the cooperative attempt of district, industry, and academy, to construct the new education system of the 21st century to develop the excellent human resources, who can think, learn, and work for themselves.

IVRC Award @Laval Virtual
- STUART (Grégoire Davenas, Benoît Senand & Marc Teyssie, L’École de design Nantes Atlantique, France)
International Video Submission
- Overflown (team: ’3/4, L’École de design Nantes Atlantique, France)
Overflown uses virtual reality to allow the user to embody the wind, which is an intangible and uncontrollable entity. This mixed reality and poetic experience associates a dreamlike world with tangible propellers. With hand movements, the player affects wind, allowing him to control the trajectory of a virtual soap-bubble.
- sharedFace (team: Moréaré, McGill University, Canada)
sharedFace enables a participant to become a desired character using a face mask and dynamic projection mapping. Other participants can switch the theme of the projection or paint on the mask through mobile web browsers, which is intended as an art performance and a novel communication tool between the participants.
