SoarTech to Showcase Glidin2 Demo at I/ITSEC 2018
Soar Technology, Inc. (SoarTech) challenges IITSEC attendees to test their skills in Glidin2, an exciting 180-degree Field of View (FOV) hang-gliding simulator that suspends players in a real harness. The Glidin2 system, a finalist in the Serious Games Showcase and Challenge, will be available for play at the SGS booth (#2481). Additionally, the multiplayer version of Glidin2 will be featured at SoarTech’s booth (#339), where I/ITSEC attendees can compete for daily top-score prizes. Glidin2 represents an innovative SBIR transition and commercialization success for SoarTech.
Glidin2 is an internally-funded variant of a parachute-descent trainer system, SkyFall, currently under development as a Phase II SBIR effort funded by the US Navy as a replacement training system for Parachute Descent Procedures (PDP). Skyfall features multiple displays, a touchscreen trainer configuration panel, and support for multiple aircraft flight gear and parachute configurations. SoarTech adapted the configuration of the SkyFall system to develop the multiplayer arcade game Glidin2. In Glidin2, players are suspended in a hang glider canopy and use hand controls to navigate a powered paraglider through various fictional levels and environments, collecting coins and racing through a sequence of in-air checkpoints. Leaderboard stats are collected and displayed for performance analysis and comparisons. Don’t miss the chance to demo this new game and showcase your skills!
