Liz Stinson:  "IN A LOT of ways, designing in virtual reality is just like designing in real life. Certain rules must be followed to ensure that people have an enjoyable experience. In the physical world, this might mean you can navigate a building without getting frustrated; in the virtual one, it means you won’t puke on your shoes."

Richard Platt's curator insight, May 15, 4:40 PM

Forget waiting in line for 45 minutes to ride a roller coaster that lasts less than a minute. A new type of theme park is coming that will let you strap on a virtual reality helmet and charge headlong into a horde of monsters with a massive broadsword in tow.  That’s the promise of The Void, a new virtual reality entertainment center setting up shop in Salt Lake City, UT.    Inside The Void center, players will be able to choose their preferred adventure type, be handed a virtual reality helmet and vest and then enter a kind of arena designed around the adventure.  According to a preview video posted to The Void’s website, each arena will be designed for a specific type of adventure and feature “4D” environmental elements.  If it’s raining in your particular game, mist will fall from the ceiling.    The Void’s Rapture helmet and vest both provide similarly realistic sensations, as the vest offers haptic feedback that shakes when you fire a gun or take a hit.

The idea for The Void is certainly an ambitious one, and the video the company advertises its technology with looks incredibly promising, but it would be remiss if we didn’t point out that what The Void is trying to accomplish looks incredibly difficult.  If the company can actually deliver on its promise of a fully immersive simulator like the ones shown in its preview video, it would instantly become the ultimate gaming experience. But let’s just say we’re not holding our breath.
