Realcast Chooses PICO 4 Enterprise VR Headset for the Immersive Mixed Reality Experience, The Adventure of Hangar Y

Historic French national heritage site Hangar Y hosts the largest mixed reality project in the world.

Realcast, an award-winning developer of VR video games and innovative mixed-reality experiences, has chosen the PICO 4 Enterprise headset for its new immersive experience, The Adventure of Hangar Y, hosted by the historical landmark in Meudon. The immersive experience, exclusive to Hangar Y and representing the largest mixed reality project currently in the world, transforms the hangar and brings visitors back to the 19th century, highlighted by a 1:1 replica of the famous airship, La France.
The 30 minute experience can host up to 40 people simultaneously, putting them at the center of this historical journey. It features a number of unique interactions, including movable objects, quizzes and more, taking visitors through a rich adventure of aeronautical and artistic innovation. The Hangar Y experience seamlessly blends mixed reality elements while also incorporating PICO 4 Enterprise's advanced hand tracking feature, enabling visitors to engage with the content without the need for controllers, resulting in an even more immersive and natural experience.
The Adventure of Hangar Y explores the rise of aeronautics that began in the 19th century, focusing on the design of La France by engineers Captain Paul Renard, Captain Charles Renard and Captain Arthur Constantin Krebs, all officers of the French Armée de Terre Corps du Génie (Corps of Engineers) at the central military aeronautics establishment at Chalais-Meudon. On August 9, 1884, the three engineers took the first controllable free flight when they piloted La France more than 4 miles. This immersive exhibition brings visitors back to this time to relive the historic flight in the unique experience of mixed reality.
Launched last fall, the PICO 4 Enterprise is a next-generation, all-in-one VR headset that offers a more immersive and interactive VR experience. Compact and lightweight, the PICO 4 Enterprise weighs just 300g, plus strap and battery, and is packed full of next-generation technology. In addition, the headset's four well-placed SLAM cameras placed around its thin frame enable high-precision tracking and mapping of surrounding environments, while maintaining a stylish appearance.
"We are honored that Realcast has chosen the PICO 4 Enterprise to help visitors relive this historic moment in aeronautics," said Alizé Amrani, EMEAI Enterprise Marketing Lead for PICO. "The Adventure of Hangar Y demonstrates the boundless opportunities virtual reality and VR headsets like the PICO 4 Enterprise can bring to significant cultural experiences such as The Adventure of Hangar Y."
