Valkyrie Industries Crowdfunding Case Study

Valkyrie Industries has created BiFrost, a wearable haptic suit to let users feel, touch, and hold objects naturally in virtual simulations. BiFrost has been piloted successfully with the UK’s space agency (estimated at $4.36 billion in 2023), and Valkyrie Industries is confident that BiFrost will be the first haptic suit of its kind to be adopted by the space industry. Valkyrie Industries chose Crowdcube as their crowdfunding platform and came to us as consultants for their campaign. As a result, Valkyrie Industries’ campaign on Crowdcube raised £381,114. Here’s how Drop Studio helped them reach success on Crowdcube.

Valkyrie Industries – The Brand

Augmented or virtual reality (AR/VR) has grown to be an industry that will reach $1 trillion by 2030. While it can be used for entertainment purposes, it has many industrial applications too. One important use of VR is in the automotive industry, where it is used for design, engineering, and has even featured in the medical field, where VR surgical training helps doctors perform operations.

Valkyrie Industries has utilised VR technology in developing their wearable haptic suit that mirrors the human nervous system.
