The headset works with room scale technology meaning that you can physically walk around in a virtual reality space, touch stuff, pick up stuff and completely interact with virtual reality.

We also create Custom High-End Virtual Reality solutions for Brands that want to immerse their clients in their own custom experience.

Video we took at one of our Virtual Reality Activations

If you want to offer people something different as part of your events and activations then virtual reality could be what you are looking for!

We recorded this video at one of our events, have a look at the video and get an idea of how we used virtual reality at this event to attract people to our stand!

Setting up the HTC VIVE Virtual Reality System at an event.

We have many clients asking us how do we setup the HTC VIVE virtual reality system at an event. I decided to record this timelapse video at one of our recent activation to showcase how it is done. (This is not a technical setup video, and it does not have instructions). The video basically shows the process and how long it takes to setup the HTC VIVE system for an event, or for a virtual reality presentation.

It takes +/- 30 minutes up to an hour to setup a basic Virtual Reality system at a event!

Custom Virtual Reality Experience

Here is some footage from another one of the virtual reality events we did. This was a custom virtual reality solution that we developed for Extramarks. In this virtual reality experience kids got to do a science experiment and experience virtual reality as an educational tool first hand!

The exhibition and virtual reality events which were held across the country was a huge success, drawing people to the Extramarks stand, and getting them to sign up to their educational platform.

  • We developed the custom virtual reality experience.
  • We provided the Virtual Reality equipment for the events.
  • We provided the Activation Personnel for the Virtual Reality part of the exhibition.
