Location-Based VR Turning LA into a Hub of Immersive Gaming

(TechCrunch)  Several LBEVR companies (many based in Los Angeles) that are turning LA into a hub for those looking to experience the thrill of immersive gaming. At Two Bit Circus, which raised $15 million from investors last January, virtual reality will be about 20% of the experiences on offer. The company’s inaugural space in Los Angeles will also avail itself of projection mapping, augmented reality and other ways to immerse and entertain.
The benefits of location-based experiences are clear. The cost of premium headsets and gaming systems prohibit most U.S. households from getting the gear in their hands and until those costs come down, out-of-home experiences provide the best way to get consumers comfortable with the technology.
