The Void’s ‘Star Wars’ VR Experience Illustrates the Future of Theme Parks

(FastCompany)  The Void has built a spectacular Star Wars VR experience with Disney’s help that illustrates what the new AR/VR technology can do for location-based entertainment. A scenario at The Void is quite different than any other VR experience one will likely have encountered. Rather than standing in place or even inside a single room and being tracked via a headset and VR-specific gaming controllers, The Void uses a more complex system that gives users more freedom.
The Void is an independent company and was a 2017 participant in the Disney Accelerator program. Both Ghostbusters and Star Wars are licensed properties that Sony and Disney allowed to be built into the Void’s VR experiences as tests and trials for more to come. NOTE: Rising Media has scheduled a “Future of Immersive Leisure Event’ to be held in London on October 16, 2018. Stay tuned here for future updates and information.
