Ever since I saw this video
last week I've been meaning to post a topic here.
THE VOID is a new brand of virtual reality attractions that combine the technology, in the form of an Oculus Rift type headset, with physical environments and effects. The first centre will be opening in Utah next year, however they also list that major cities throughout North and South America, Asia, Europe and Australia will also be locations for centres as the project develops over the next few years.
The first centre already seems to be at a stage where people are being allowed to try it out, and so far it seems that the reviews are overwhelmingly popular, with many remarking at how real and immersive the experience is. What's more, the website states that once opened the centres will receive quarterly updates, creating an ever evolving experience - certainly an exciting prospect.
The video does also have a short segment which looks at using a simulator as part of the experience. Perhaps this could be the future of theme park attractions, as we're now starting to see the first use of VR with rollercoasters.
Head over to the website
for more information.
