Virtual Walcthrough or Pearls of Flanders
Flanders Technology International (F.T.I.), Mechelen (Belgium)
19 April 1999

This high end VR was prepared for the F.T.I. Technoland exhibition that took place in Ghent (Belgium) at 19-25 April 1999. Since the visitors of the exhibition appreciated this virtual walkthrough through 6 cities of Flanders, it will be shown on the permanent exhibition in Technopolis. Historical centers of 6 cities were reproduced: Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, Brugge, Leuven, and Hasselt. Each of them is a real-time 3D experience with full immersion in the center of the old city: square and adjacent streets. You can slide through the streets with the aid of a joystick or keyboard, exploring the picturesque old buildings. All facades, sculptures, fountains are reproduced with high fidelity, with love to the national heritage. Though so many details in the scene, the movement is smooth due to unique performance: 25 frames per second on a PII-300 with accelerator card. For the exhibition these virtual experiences were organized in a way to give the user the feeling of being really in these cities – they were shown on three 2.5x3 meters, screens (150°) placed in front of the visitor. To provide the high correspondence of models to real cities more than 2000 digital photos have been made. They were converted into more than 5500 textures to cover polygonal models. The aerial photos were used to provide exactness of the building's lay-out. A team of 12 artists and modelers worked furiously to finish all six models in 1.5 months to be in time to present it in Gent.

Lingerie Boutique Gazelle
Marketing prototype, In-house - 1996

A demo of what the ideal on-line lingerie boutique should and could be. More marketing thought has gone into this than meets the eye: beyond catering to men for the obvious reasons, the design is interesting for women too because of the ingenious way in which they can virtually 'try on' the articles. Beyond that it would lower the threshold of the real-world equivalent for the shyer men among us looking to please their ladies too...

TGV visualization
Flanders Technology International (F.T.I.), Mechelen (Belgium) - December 23, 1999

'Train à grande vitesse' (Train with high speed) was done for Electrabel, one of the Technopolis partners. Tractebel Energy Engineering was the project coordinator during the whole production period. TGV is a train simulation, for witch the Unreal 3D engine was used. Two tracks (each 2 km length) were created for the virtual presentation of train moving in a typical Belgian landscape at sunset. A camera is circling around the locomotive showing the locomotive and a part of the first carriage of the train, which is moving at a speed of 100 till 350 km/hour. The special light effects create the impression of the sunset time. Gorgeous red-blue clouds, the orange horizon and lit lamps along the track help to get the atmosphere of the 'close to the night' environment.stressed, as shown in this site.
