VANCOUVER, BC / YDreams Global Interactive Technologies Inc. (TSXV: YD) (FSE: APY) (“YDreams Global” or the “Company”), a creative and technical supplier for Fortune 500 brands such as Cisco, Qualcomm, Intel as well as the Government of Rio de Janeiro, is pleased to announce that it will use its extensive knowledge of Virtual Reality (“VR”), gaming and immersive experiences to develop training solutions for military use.
The main goal is to create a complete platform to be used by the military and other government agencies such as police departments, fire departments, and emergency medical services that could use the VR as a training experience. By using this technology for training, for example the military, police and fire, would be able to experience accurate real life situations that would be impossible to replicate in physical world exercises.
Very few companies in the world provide this technology and YDreams Global’s goal is to expand through commercial partners in North America, South America and Europe, to offer this platform to military and civilian defense forces.
Marcos Alves, Director of YDreams Global products division, explains that YDreams Global will create a lifelike experience and improve military techniques. “VR is emerging as a technology that can improve the way we learn and experience stressful situations in a safer environment,” explains Mr. Alves.
By using VR simulations, it is possible to optimize training budget and while simultaneously increasing the number of scenarios. “YDreams is setting out to offer VR training techniques to thousands of military, police and other agencies in this space. By bringing VR technology into their training routine, a new era of military training may be possible, increasing safety for both sides: the police force and the general population. We are very excited about this new development and the impact it may have on YDreams’ growth. The defense sector has a massive market and we feel that YDreams has a distinct advantage to develop VR techniques for this sector,” declared the CEO of the Company, Daniel Japiassu.
YDreams Global anticipates that the working version will be available in the second quarter of 2017. This project involves partnerships with several hardware companies.
