Hydro ‘eternalizes’ a-ha in virtual reality

Put on your VR goggles and join us! Just as aluminium is eternally renewable, we will now help make one of the legendary pop band a-ha's concerts eternally available, in virtual reality.

VR is one of the major technology trends in 2016, and it has never before been possible to recreate the feeling of being somewhere else so completely. We want to share this feeling with you. The concert is now available through the app ‘a-ha VR’ available for both iPhone and Android phones:

Download the a-ha VR app from iOS App Store Download the a-ha VR app from Google Play

You may also see the concert in VR on Hydro’s YouTube-channelWith your smartphone, click “settings” in the video and select the highest quality.

All you need is a smartphone and VR glasses, and you can experience the feeling of being in the audience – or even on stage next to lead singer Morten Harket.

VR-glasses are available in different shapes and prices. The cheapest are available for just 10-15 $.

What is VR and what do you need?

VR stands for virtual reality. To achieve the illusion you have to be wearing VR glasses that cover the entire field of view. The glasses are stereoscopic and display a separate image for each eye, giving three-dimensionality and depth perception.

What you see is your smartphone, which is inserted into the glasses. The VR glasses (i.e. your phone) sense how you move your head, so you can look around in all directions without breaking the illusion. You also need headphones, as the sound is an important part of the concert experience.

 

How to get VR-glasses?

VR glasses are found in many forms; from professional versions costing hundreds of dollars, to simple cardboard versions costing only a few dollars.

The easiest way to acquire a pair of VR glasses is to search the web for “VR glasses” to get a list of suppliers.

Alternatively, Google supplies this comprehensive list of suppliers for the most reasonable VR-glasses: Google Cardboard Viewers

The Norwegian company Alustar bases its offshore scaffolding concept on aluminium, because it weighs half as much as a steel-made concept and is just as strong. This makes it easier on installers.

True! When you construct and fit them properly, aluminium assemblies for offshore structures will not corrode.

Absolute 90's! Our young, energetic engineers ‍♂️ studying a 3D-simulated image of an extruded aluminium profile in 1995, to innovate the production of high-quality aluminium. The knowledge gained more than 20 years ago, was the start of today's advanced design technology.
