June 2016 marked the second year we were invited to a series of Cambridge Universities May Balls. With the ever growing selection of headsets we attended this years balls with a series of the latest tech and experiences to create a unique virtual reality arcade for the Jesus College May Ball's theme, Uninhabitable.
With us, we brought:
- 3 x Samsung Gear VR
- 2 x Oculus Rift DK2 w/PC's
- 1 x HTC Vive
- 3 x VR Specialist's
We know how busy these events can be for the organisers so we took the lead and set up in our area with no other interaction from the organisers other than a big thumbs up!
The room was packed with students from 8pm until we wrapped up at 3am with students enjoying everything from 360 videos scuba diving, destroying wave after wave of zombies on the HTC Vive and sampling the finest experiences Oculus has to offer.
"Virtually Mine were an asset to the May Ball this year. With their variety of virtual entertainments offered we could tailor our package to the exact image we wanted to create in terms of both our target audience and theme. Positive feedback was received throughout the ball from both guests and student journalists. I would highly recommend snapping up these guys if they are available!"
