2018 ended with a bang and REM5 was packed between Christmas Day and New Years Eve. We took a few days off the spend with family and friends, giving us time to recharge as a busy January begins.
Team Building in VR
As we break down the stigma virtual reality has of being only for gamers or kids, we're seeing more and more interest in corporate events, including full buyouts of our space. We usually have a few confused faces as people come in for these events, but invariably confusion turns into smiles of joy as people experience VR for the first time and find a new way to bond with their co-workers. And with more multi-player experiences being added to our menu, you can literally build a team in a virtual world. That's a next-level team building event.
Tweaking the lineup
As we evolve, we keep changing what we're offering on our VR menu to meet customer demand. This week, we're taking Hoops VR and Final Goalie off the regular menu and adding HoloBall, a simple but incredibly fun racketball-type experience. To take HoloBall to the next level, play against a friend in The Quad, where your location in the virtual and real world are almost identical.
Peripherals are coming to REM5
If you've been to REM5 recently, you may have seen that we've also been playing with peripherals like a hockey stock and tennis racket that track in the virtual environment. As of yesterday, we are playing table tennis with a real paddle in VR. Mind blown! And that's just the beginning; we will be one of the first locations in the world to have the Striker VR gun for HTC Vive, so stay tuned for more.
