Virtro Entertainment Announces Selection for Oculus Launch Pad 2018
"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."
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.
