Video: The next-gen theme park is here and it features virtual reality

An indoor VR theme park? This was made for Ireland.

‘The Void’ is the brainchild of a Utah based company that is setting out to create a series of “virtual entertainment centres” that will use augmented reality software to create a haven for virtual game-play.

We imagine the centres would look a bit like your average Quasar (Q-Zar) zone, but instead of unloading a virtual magazine into a snot-nosed 14-year-old, you will be able to unload a virtual magazine into a life-sized monster.

Check it out…

The company aims to open the first virtual reality centre in Utah sometime in 2016.

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, “Guests will be able to enter a ‘game pod,’ wearing a custom-made ‘Rapture’ HMD (head mounted display) and vest, to provide 3-D visuals, sound, tactile response (called ‘haptic feedback’) and location tracking."

The Void aims to stimulate all of your senses, as the facilities will also be equipped to simulate changes in elevation, vibrations, heat and cold sensations, moisture, and simulated liquids and smells.

Here’s to hoping The Void sees completion in 2016 and makes its way over to Ireland soon after.

We've had a hankering to do some virtual reality garden work...
