At the exhibition, Takeshi Fujiwara, the event’s show director, told OLEDNET that they have been expecting VR’s vitalization in manufacturing industry, hosting IVR for 24 years, and the proportion of it increased by a groundbreaking number. Until now, it has been mostly handled in academia such as research labs, but as VR is nearing the general public through construction, game, amusement, etc., Fujiwara explained that he sees this year to be VR’s year of vitalization.

Plenty of VR related contents and software products were exhibited in Manufacturing World Japan 2016 (22-25 June).
Transmedia presented Drop in VR which is a platform which allows users to create, manage and publish VR contents. The user-created 3D modelled contents can be uploaded to the Drop in VR server, and edited by adding music, clips, and other functions.
The produced contents can be downloaded and enjoyed through a VR device. At the exhibition, Transmedia demonstrated VR contents that allows comic books to be viewed in 360°, edited by Drop in VR. The company explained to the OLEDNET that they will begin testing in September and begin Drop in VR service by the end of the year.
Informatix revealed a 3D viewer software GyroEye that can be used in housing or office design. Using GyroEye, hypothetical space can be compared before construction and after construction in 360° through VR. Informatix explained that in August, GyroEye and Germany’s Zeiss’ VR device VR one+ will be released together.
ZENKEI began VR platform Stereo 6 for viewing scenery in 22 June. Stereo 6 is a comprehensive system that allows clips from 6 cameras to be transformed into 360° contents and experienced through VR.
Dynamo Amusement, showed their VR contents Megalodon, and used Samsung Electronics’ Gear VR and Galaxy S6 for demonstration. The company explained that Megalodon, a 5-minute CG produced contents showing deep sea underwater world, will be released in the summer.

At Manufacturing World Japan (22-25 June, Tokyo Big Sight), 4D movie was demonstrated through Gear VR.
Dynamo Amusement, a contents company, showed their VR contents Megalodon, and used Samsung Electronics’ Gear VR and Galaxy S6 for demonstration. The company explained that they used these devices as they were popular although the content is not exclusive to these products.
For the demonstration, visitors could sit in chairs installed in the Dynamo Amusement booth wearing Galaxy S6 equipped Gear VR. The focus could be controlled using the wheel on Gear VR.
Megalodon is a clip that shows the deep sea underwater world using CG technology. The moving chairs and air jets are not different from existing 4D contents, but the VR screen provided realistic experience, much more vivid, including the scene where the viewer is swallowed by a giant shark.
However, the picture quality remains an issue. Despite using the wheel to focus, the clear picture was not produced. This is dependent on the resolution of the smartphone connected to the VR device, the Galaxy S6 used in the demonstration has AMOLED panel of 577 ppi, 2560 x 1440. Nonetheless, with Samsung’s recent reveal of 806 ppi AMOLED for VR at 5 inch mark, future picture quality improvement is anticipated.
Additionally, despite the vividness directly ahead, concentration was difficult due to the not insignificant weight of the device. A total weight of 518 g, Gear VR’s 380 g and Galaxy S6’s 138 g, can be heavy to be placed on the head for a long period of time. For longer uses, the weight has to be reduced.
Dynamo Amusement’s Megalodon has the running time of 5 minutes, to be released this summer.
