The Void, a new form of Virtual Reality, is introducing a theme park that allows people to interact and experience the virtual world. Currently situated in Utah, the void immerses the user into the environment, enhancing visual experience and creating a perception of physical interaction in their mind.
The void uses a VR headset connected to a supercomputer, allowing the user to walk around freely. The players will also need to wear a haptic suit, which will send feedback by tracking their interaction, ultimately appealing to the virtual experience by involving fog machines and moving podiums. The developers consider this “Hyper-Reality.”
The company explained that the new concept is “Utilizing a layering of real-time interactive environments, and blending the real world with the digital.”
The company plans to introduce the new concept of Hyper-Reality in different regions across the globe. Although The Void will create their own content to entertain customers, the company plans on converting major films and video games into Hyper-Reality. Rumors suggest it could be priced at about $30-$50 per session. Click here and here for reviews.
The Void recently partnered with Sony Pictures to launch their first Hyper-Reality experience for the public. The upcoming movie Ghostbusters will debut its Hyper-Reality version as “Ghostbusters Dimension” for people in Times Square, according to The Verge.
The venue is situated inside Madame Tussauds Wax Musuem, where it will give attendees the first look at the virtual world, exploring all props used in the film.
The debut is scheduled on July 1, before the film releases on July 15. Classic Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman and reboot director Paul Feig is working alongside The Void to improve the virtual version. Click here to check out their website.
