Animation World Network reports that The Strain VR won “Best VR Based on Cinematic and Television Experience” and the Google Shop at Currys VR Tour was named “Best in Mobile VR” at the recent Digital Hollywood VR awards:
Google Shop at Currys VR Tour launched in April 2015 as the first official app for Google Cardboard, and introduces viewers to a Google retail store before it opens to the public. Viewers can navigate the environment via head positioning and interact with pop-up icons for an engaging and intimate experience. For The Strain VR experience, viewers follow the character Vasiliy Fet on an immersive 360-degree journey through an abandoned warehouse filled with threatening vampires. Mirada’s customized platform also enabled real-time effects and spatial audio.
