A company in Salt Lake City says it’s about to break ground on the amusement park of the future — one built especially with VR enthusiasts in mind.
The VOID — it stands for The Vision of Infinite Dimensions — is working toward opening a VR theme park in the area that will combine a set of physical experiences with equipment like a head mounted display and a vest with 22 points of haptic feedback. As VOID co-founder Ken Bretschneider, explains it, the company then uses that gear to overlay a digital world onto what’s really a basic, sparse room. You walk around it physically but experience, well, whatever the company decides it wants you to experience.
It can put you in an essentially empty room and make you feel, with the attached headset and equipment, that you’re fighting aliens; scurrying through a maze; exploring a city; like a souped up laser tag-meets-dungeon crawler-meets immersive 4D experience. More →
