Virtual reality for industry, a convincing innovation

For 3 days, more than a hundred people tried the immersive experience and tested Immersive Factory virtual reality solutions. Among them, some personalities who were kind enough to confront the sensations caused by a virtual accident: Muriel Penicaud (Minister of Labor), Xavier Huillard (CEO of Vinci) and Yves Meignie (CEO of Vinci Energies) or François Darchis (DG from Air Liquide).
