REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VRstudios®, the leading provider of commercial-grade, wireless virtual reality (VR) turnkey solutions for Location-Based Entertainment (LBE) businesses, announced today the latest addition to its product line, the VRcade Atom™. The Atom sets a new standard for commercial-quality wireless VR systems built exclusively for LBE venues of all sizes. The system is very cost effective, easy to install and efficient to operate. Atoms have a small footprint, and like the other VRcade systems, do not require expensive facility changes or construction. It’s a turnkey system that includes everything an LBE needs to add room-scale, free-roaming, multiplayer VR attractions to their entertainment business.
Built on the VRcade Attraction Management Platform (AMP), the Atom is the first LBE VR turnkey solution integrating best-in-class compute power, head-mounted display technology, wireless transmission and positional tracking from industry leaders including Hewlett-Packard, HTC and TPCAST. Utilizing AMP’s content management features, the Atom runs experiences from the company’s portfolio of VRcade wireless, multiplayer attractions expressly built for commercial LBE operations. This includes: VRcade’s classic Time Zombies, Barking Irons, planktOs and Drone Storm. In addition, LBE companies can augment the VRcade commercial attractions with curated titles licensed from Valve Corporation’s STEAM store, all centrally managed through AMP.
Atoms can be easily installed as individual systems or in combination with other Atoms, VRcade Zones or VRcade Arena systems. Utilizing AMP, multiple Atoms can be networked together to increase the virtual player count in attraction titles that support the feature. The Atom is easy to set up, take down, relocate or reconfigure. Installations can be done quickly with no special facility requirements or additional infrastructure, such as rigid truss systems. The standard configuration requires only a 10’x10’ footprint for a multiplayer system, making it an efficient use of floorspace and driving a very favorable return on investment over single-player, wired options.
“The VRcade Atom is another significant addition to our growing family of turnkey solutions built expressly for the LBE operators. It demonstrates our ongoing focus and strategy to integrate the latest and best technology available, utilizing our AMP platform to make it easy and efficient for LBEs to operate on a daily basis,” said Kevin Vitale, VRstudios’ CEO. “Atom is a true commercial-grade, wireless free-roaming system, and its price point makes it compelling for LBEs to drop the wires and add VR attractions to their business.”
The VRcade Atom is available to demonstrate and order directly from VRstudios. Requests for product information, demonstration or purchasing should be directed to John Walthall, Vice President, Business Development: firstname.lastname@example.org.
