Virtual Boat Show “TOYOTA Marine WORLD”
Toyota Marine World was a specially built virtual booth that we planned and produced. It was requested by Toyota Marine for the largest boat show in Japan — the Japan International Boat Show 2021.

We accurately recreated each of these three boats as a 3D model on a 1:1 scale and showed our VR production prowess by creating the a great user experience and modeling the boats with a balance between the technical limitations and high-quality design.

There was also an area for doing interviews and taking commemorative photos. We had many visitors to the store, and had access points to the virtual store at SoftBank’s 5G Lab Fukuoka and eighteen other SoftBank shops around the Kyushu region.
