In June of 2017 the ESB sought a virtual reality solution to help them explain how their innovative sub sea cable repair solution works. They had a couple of traditional videos that explained the basic operation of the habitat, but because most of the work was done with divers at depth it was problematic to film its actual operation with anything other than underwater action cameras.
Following a successful tender process, we set about identifying how virtual reality could be used to tell the story of the sub-sea habitat in a more immersive, engaging way. Our specific challenges were to convey the story of the habitat in 3 minutes, to add some interactive elements and to allow all participants to actually carry out the repair themselves. This is the result of that process.
