Virtuactions: a Virtual Reality Arena

 

Location-based entertainment (LBE) is one of the most promising areas in the segment of Virtual Reality. The hallmark is that a group of participants can interact with each other in a virtual environment in the prepared area. Just imagine yourself and your friends exploring an abandoned castle and looking for the answers to the prepared quest and fighting with hordes of zombies in an infected city, while visually and physically feeling your partner next to you in a virtual sphere. All these are plots of various LBE games. The first arenas of this type appeared in 2015 for major players such as Zero Latency, The Void, Sandbox VR, Hologate, IMAX, etc. They created the products based on HTC VIVE headsets and portable PC with a body tracking system via attachable sensors.
