VANCOUVER, British Columbia - July 18, 2019 - PRLog -- Virtro Entertainment, the leading immersive media studio, announces that they've been selected as one of Oculus Launch Pad Scholarship 2018 winners for their social impact VR & AI project Argotian. With over 100 applicants at last year's boot camp event, Oculus Launch Pad is a program that supports emerging VR content creators from diverse backgrounds and helps to bring their creative ideas to market. The event took place in Menlo Park, CA in June and after a further 5 months of prototyping, Oculus decided to award Argotian one of their prestigious Launch Pad funding scholarships.

"Our VR language-learning solution, Argotian is a unique project that pushes the boundaries of the technology to deliver a personalized, immersive and fun language learning experience, whether in the classroom, at home or at work" says Jordan Brighton CEO of Virtro Entertainment, "We're very excited to be picked out of an incredibly strong cohort of VR creators."

About Argotian
Argotian is a conversational language learning game that uses the smarts of AI and the immersiveness of VR to give students a tailored learning experience. Learners must work to solve mysteries on Argotian's Starship, while at the same time practicing and improving their language skills. Action within the game is activated using voice control and learners can speak with AI characters in real-time and receive unscripted responses. In Argotian, VR and AI technologies allow for successful simulation of experiential environments which are optimal for learning.

About Oculus Launch Pad
Since launching in 2016, Oculus Launch Pad, with its diversity and inclusion philosophy plus incredible resources, attracts many thousands of creators to apply each year. In 2018 out of the 100 boot camp attendees, only 4 projects received funding.

"The Oculus Launch Pad program, with its mission to support diverse founders and to help bring their unique ideas to life, is an incredible initiative to change the funding narrative, and we're delighted to be a part of it," says Lee Brighton CSO and Co-Founder of Virtro Entertainment.
