As we wake up each day, Virtual Reality is becoming more and more parts of our daily lives, and obviously, our future! Come explore what VR World NYC is all about!
As we wake up each day, Virtual Reality, or VR as we most commonly say, is becoming more and more parts of our daily lives, and obviously, our future!
Today I’m sharing with you my experience at VR World NYC. They are the biggest virtual reality center on this side of the globe with 2 floors and over 50 games, films and experiences for you to try!
The video above shows you some of the ones I have the most fun with, but I do have to say, they are all quite entertaining. You can definitely spend several hours there, since there is just so much to see.
So, what is Virtual Reality?
In a very simples way, it’s an interactive technology that is computer generated and creates experiences that are not possible in the real world, using many of our senses.
And, in the middle of New York’s chaotic 34th Street, you’d never expect to find a place like this. It’s not only super amusing for kids and I’m sure all adults will love it too! I certainly had a great time!
Oh! It’s also a great spot to host a party! There are several cool spaces for groups from 20 and over 400! So be sure to contact them for more details. You can also contact us to help you out or even organize a corporate/team experience.
One of the highlights: Moveo
You can me inside this one in the video! It’s the first 360º free-rotation VR simulator. You go through fully immersive 3D worlds, flying through space and you experience the gravitational pull of objects nearby.
Exclusive to VR World NYC, MOVEO is harnessing cutting edge technology to create a truly immersive experience.
The simulator is the first of its kind to use independent three axis rotation, connecting the human experience with a responsive audial, visual and physical environment.
I also really enjoyed the experiences on the 2nd floor, once specifically that I was rock climbing in Thailand. It was just SO real. My legs literally got numb by virtually climbing up a cliff and looking down!
It’s crazy how you literally feel everything as if you were actually there!
As I said above, it’s a great place for kids! But, if you’re coming to New York City with kids, but you’re not sure if it’s a good idea, take a look to see all the infinite reasons why NYC is great for kids!
