VR Recyling Game
The vision of Lassila & Tikanoja is to put the circular economy into practice. Together with the Finnish VR startup Avains they created a solution that teaches how to recycle while having fun at the same time.
The aim of this mini-project was to both find both new and fun ways to train recycling and give L&T practical understanding on how VR can be used for teaching and training purposes. “L&T is constantly seeking for new ways to support individuals in recycling. The idea of the game was to simulate and teach recycling” Ville Simola from L&T summarizes the idea.
The mini-project consisted of three phases: ideation, development and sharing the results. Demos Helsinki and FIVR supported L&T in defining the problem they wanted to solve by using VR. FIVR used it’s connections in finding the right VR developer, Avains, and coordinated the collaboration between Avains and L&T. The result were presented to the staff at L&T and the VR Recycling Game has been used for marketing and promotion purposes.
