It isn’t often that you’re transported back to your childhood but we were fortunate enough to be able to transport guests of the LGC Investment Summit back to the 1980’s with a rendition of Pac-Man, except this time the game was played on a ‘360 treadmill’ called ROVR and in Virtual Reality!
In all it’s glory Pac-Man chomped up and down gobbling white orbs, destined to clear each level without being caught by a ghost. In reality however, we saw guests furiously shimmy on the ROVR to move Pac -an just like you did with the joystick back in the days of the arcade.
Once you’ve Donned a pair of low friction shoes the ROVR allows you to move through some of your favourite games just by sliding your feet across the dish.
Move! You’re the controller
Virtual Reality is awesome, we love it! But sometimes it’s not enough to put on a headset and sit down, you want to move through the experience and feel part of the journey. Something traditional consoles could never offer with just hand held controls. The ROVR does just that, using the sound of your sliding feet as the forward control and the direction you look in to move you left and right.
Running on a variety of VR headsets it’s a real spectacle at events taking a VR experience to a whole other level. We’ve tested a few VR favorites at events including Pac-Man, Affected and Minecraft VR! It’s Suitable for those over 16 and requires a minimum of a 3x2m space with a monitor.
The ROVR is now available for hire at events across the UK With a VR Specialist - email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
