As the opening months of 2018 come to an end we thought we’d do a quick update of what’s going on at AppAttic HQ. January was spent finalising clinical trial protocols for our MAGIC Moovr VR project alongside extensive development in preparation for milestone deliverables and demos at SXSW, Austin, Texas during March. We were one of the only SME’s shortlisted as a finalist for the Northern Ireland Healthcare Awards and we were listed as a one of 2018’s Tech Pioneers in Business Cloud.

A busy couple of months, and it’s about to get busier as we head across the pond to demo Magic Moovr at SXSW. This is our VR game researched and developed as part of the Horizon 2020 project, Magic PCP.
