Indoor skydiving: an immersive experience at vrei
Starting from the 13th until the 27th of April 2016, visitors have the opportunity to do an immersive virtual skydive. To reach a high level of presence, the VR experience is boosted with a simulator by Hop and Pop VR, a company providing canopy flight training for professional and casual users. The “Full Immersion Rig” helps the user to immerse himself/herself into the skydive experience.
We are excited to visit vrei ourselves within the next weeks! See you there!
