The purpose of the VR experience is to demonstrate Dell/Alienware + AMD leadership in VR and how technology can educate and inspire action about critical environmental issues.
Alienware Area 51 desktops featuring
AMD's Radeon™ Fury X graphics deliver the incredible power that will help transport viewers into the film’s intensely realistic environment.
An underwater VR expedition created by
3D Live on
Dell Precision workstations with
AMD FirePro™ W9100 graphics and powered by
Alienware Area 51s with
AMD Radeon™ R9 graphics and HTC technology, “Cry Out: The Lonely Whale Experience” transports viewers into the depths of the sea to witness underwater life and how pollution has disrupted it. The collaboration seeks to educate audiences about the work of Grenier’s
Lonely Whale Foundation, a non-profit focused on bringing people closer to the world’s oceans through education and awareness, inspiring empathy and action for ocean health and the wellbeing of marine wildlife. It is a multi-sensory experience with the 360-degree panorama of
HTC Vive headsets augmented by
Subpac tactile bass system, and
MX4D motion platform seating with movement, wind, mist and other realistic sensations.
