    summer just outside of Salt Lake City Utah This Virtual Entertainment Center VEC will be an experience somewhere in between a live action game and a movie taking place in one of seven 60 by 60 foot gaming pods where groups of up to ten people can play The VOID s team of developers is working to create simulations of moisture texture smell and terrain among other environmental variables developing their own technologies to push VR to a new level of full body immersion The participants will put on a VR headset vest and gloves and interact with a variety of motion simulators depending on the narrative they have selected In the last year the VOID team has been testing their haptic and motion sensing technology working to eradicate the threat of nausea inducing visuals a common complaint with both VR and 3D platforms The concept of this VR theme park arose in response to the often solitary nature of virtual reality especially as it expands and becomes available in peoples homes Bretschneider saw an opportunity for families and friends to get out of the house and experience this new technology together without the trouble of setting the systems up at home He wanted the experiences to be more physically immersive than a sofa would allow requiring motion capture and a capacity for rapid movement around the gaming pod He also is pushing for partnerships with game studios and developers who can adapt their games for his platform and then hold cross promotional events and installations The goal is to eventually expand into every city in North America Asia and Europe keeping the prices affordable and switching out the Dimensions every quarter so that there are constantly new story worlds to compete in It will be interesting to see how
