What is virtual reality?

Virtual reality (VR) is a computer-generated simulation of a 3D environment that can be interacted with by a person using special electronic equipment. The history of VR goes back a lot further than even the existence of computers, we mean way back, right to 1838 where the first stereoscope was invented using two mirrors to project a single image.

A century later, this developed into the patented View-Master which is still produced today, but it wasn’t until the 1980s that the term ‘virtual reality’ was coined and the popularity of the medium gained traction. By the 1990s VR had died off with people favouring the home computer as a more useful tool and as other technologies grew in popularity the concept of VR became quite kitsch until about 15-20 years later, when the smartphone and online gaming brought this platform back from the dead in a very big way. This developed in allowing people to not only experience a virtual 3D environment from the comfort of their own couch, but also in allowing us to give you a new virtual reality experience in London with a social element too.

What makes virtual reality at Navrtar special?

A big arena where groups of 5 people can move around freely allows for a more immersive and believable experience when hooked up to the digital world. Typically virtual reality only allowed for one player - limited to a confined space - to navigate a virtual realm, but in our arena your movement is not limited and you are able to interact with others in the physical space, as well as the virtual world.

While 5 people at a time are using the space, a larger group of people may be participating in the whole event; with drinks in hand, seated in a comfortable lounge, your friends can watch your participation together while they wait their turn for a chance in the arena. They will be able to watch your movements in a live feed from the arena, as well as being able to see what you’re seeing in virtual reality.

Our virtual reality experience in London will give you the best tools to experience true submersion, as wireless headsets cast your vision into a new dimension. Your hands will be kept busy with believable futuristic guns to help you slay the zombies that threaten mankind, as you run around our arena protecting your friends.
