The Atlantic Tour Events
Innovative products designed by partners are presented and tested at a series of consumer events. They offer a practical way of assessing the products’ impact and quality and re-examining them in order to better adapt them to the end user. This part of the project is led by Donegal County Council.
“The Hooked 2018 event on the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal, North West Ireland will incorporate an exciting new showcase of Virtual Reality technology demonstrated by CAPITEN project partners, Donegal County Council Tourism Unit. Professional VR technology will be showcased at Hooked 2018 in Killybegs with unforgettable memories as visitors can experience marine tourism activities such as surfing, diving or kayaking without entering the water. The Virtual Reality technology developed as part of the CAPITEN project will allow people who cannot take part in real maritime activities due to various factors such as disability to experience activities, perhaps for the first time from the safety of the shore. This is also an excellent opportunity to give people a taste of what it is like to take part in a maritime activity and will inspire them to get out on the water and get surfing, kayaking or sailing in reality!”
