Frame VR’s Mechatron VR system has won an innovation grant through the Western Australian Innovation Vouchers Program 2017.
The Innovation Vouchers Program (IVP) is a competitive grant program established by the Western Australian Government with the aim of enabling small to medium enterprises (SMEs) to improve their capability and commercialise their ideas and innovations. – www.innovation.wa.gov.au
Frame VR’s CEO Justin McArdle and Head of Business Development Stefan Szo attended an awards ceremony at Parliament House yesterday, where the Minister for Innovation and ICT, the Hon Dave Kelly MLA (seen below with Justin), personally congratulated Frame VR and other winners of the Innovation Vouchers Program grant.
The Minister commented, “The McGowan Labor Government is committed to supporting investment in new and emerging start-ups to drive the economy and create local and regional jobs.
“Assisting small and medium businesses in their early stages of development will enhance their chances of commercial success by attracting further investment and in finding markets for their products and services.”
The Mechatron VR, which recently featured at Scitech’s 2017 Rio Tinto Innovation Festival, is a unique motion platform virtual reality system that produces an immersive, experiential simulation environment. The system has multiple applications in fields as diverse as education, entertainment, and engineering.
Frame VR thanks the Minister for Innovation and the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation for this incredible opportunity to refine the Mechatron VR system. We look forward to the next few months as we further develop and extend the Mechatron VR in readiness for its commercial launch.
