RIO TINTO OPERATIONS SIMULATOR
PIT TO PORT
VR adventure through Pilbara mines on a hydraulic powered adrenaline rush
Viewport’s time-honoured collaborator, Rio Tinto, asked us to create a fun community engagement idea for their community here in Perth. What’s more thrilling than a roller coaster ride?
How about a VR venturing through the Pilbara mines with a hydraulic powered adrenaline rush.
The project required reconfiguring the roller coaster simulation unit, in order to replicate movements and effects in exciting ways.
Custom software was developed within Viewport’s studios to display the 4k stereoscopic footage, along with custom 3D modelling and sound design.
Riders can freely look around on the immersive roller coaster through Rio Tinto’s Pilbara operations – from pit to port.
The VR roller coaster is now at Rio Tinto’s Operations Centre in Perth.
