What is being called the world’s first interactive virtual-reality theatre is opening in Atlanta. Created by new technology company Exploring Digital, the new theatre, called the Megaverse, combines VR headsets and hand controls with a multi-sensory haptic experience unlike anything on the market. With unlimited freedom to move, people physically interact in this VR theatre, literally stepping into a metaverse environment.
Megaverse is a patented environment for immersive, 4D gaming. Debuting at Sky Zone Trampoline Park in Roswell, Georgia., with expansion plans across the country, Megaverse is the first product from Exploring Digital, a new company founded by entrepreneurs Dave Walens and Matt Kelly and its recently acquired development team, 3rdRealmCreations of Mobile, Alabama.
"Megaverse is a high-tech gaming experience that is thrilling our Sky Zone members and customers," said Jeff Cole, owner and president of Sky Zone Roswell. "For less than $15, anyone can use state-of-the-art virtual reality headsets and interact with their friends in this totally unique environment."
"Exploring Digital is capitalizing on new opportunities in the VR/AR/FX, gaming, training and other industries, plus we're pursuing emerging opportunities in the non-fungible-tokens, metaverse and other spaces," said Exploring Digital CEO Walens.
In Megaverse, up to six players interact with one another as they roam freely around the rumble floor, walking, jumping, even picking up and moving objects inside this metaverse-inspired VR theatre. Players move from one virtual room to another, up and down virtual elevators, and can choose their challenge – paranormal investigator, a spy on the run, or ace gunslinger.
With custom content and, what its developers say is an easy-to-configure layout, Megaverse truly is 4D, including touch, wind, and vibration in addition to the VR challenges. Megaverse uses HTC Vive Focus 3 headsets and controllers for all-in-one VR with 5K resolution and easy input that delivers intuitive and precision controls.
