What is Virtual Reality?
Virtual Reality, commonly known as VR, is a realistic digital simulation of reality .
The reality may be a physical location such as Mount Everest or the Grand Canyon. Maybe an event in history, such as hopping around on the Moon, a simulated “other world” or back in time to pre-history, complete with dinosaurs and cave men!
Who is VR for?
The answer is simple – EVERYONE!
From age 6 to a 106, able bodied persons and those with mobility issues. The VR Experience at Tension is made for everyone.
VR is also the ultimate gaming platform, no longer are you sat at a Monitor or TV, with VR you are there! The experience is completely immersive, and incredibly believable .
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE TECHNICALLY MINDED OR A GAMER TO ENJOY VR – IT IS VERY EASY TO USE.
VR & special needs children
At Tension VR we have personal experience of working with special needs children.
We, and indeed specialists from all over the globe, have found the immersive way that VR stimulates the brain to be beneficial to many children.
We operate special sessions for those children who dislike busy chaotic environments. Just email us for details at email@example.com
CHILDREN DO NOT NEED TO BE TECHNICALLY MINDED OR A GAMER TO ENJOY VR – IT IS VERY EASY TO USE AS WELL AS BEING ENJOYABLE AND EDUCATIONAL.
Why HTC Vive?
At Tension VR we have closely watched the development of VR Technology over recent years and the software needed to optimise it.
We have invested heavily in the very best HTC Headsets and ultra powerful PC’s to perfect the experience.
The review below, written by Trusted Reviews says it all.
What is HTC Vive?
If you’ve tried Google Cardboard, Gear VR or even the Oculus Rift and think you know what virtual reality has to offer, then prepare for a rude awakening. The HTC Vive bombards you with the most immersive virtual reality experiences you can get right now. It’s incredible, and tops a promising 2016 for HTC after the excellent HTC 10.
Trying to describe it in words is a near impossible task – there are none that can do it justice. It’s like trying to draw a symphony or sculpt a ballet – the essence can be evoked, but it needs to be experienced to be truly understood.
This means that this review will be different to TrustedReviews’ usual ones. I’ll still make sure that all the positives and negatives are covered, but before you worry about any of that, you need to know that the HTC Vive is immense, wonderful and utterly fantastic.
How does Tension VR operate?
Each VR experience will take place in its own private room, with a (soft)maximum of 4 persons per room.
Each member of the group can experience VR, one at a time, as inside the room is seating for 3 persons and the person having the VR experience. Those not participating can watch the VR WORLD on a large TV screen within the room, so you can see what they see. Very exciting!
On the first session, a fully trained Tension team member will show you how to use the equipment and navigate you through the Virtual World, and load any games or experiences you wish to view.
You can also participate in experiencing VR if you wear glasses, as the headset can be adjusted. Our team member will help you with this.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE TECHNICALLY MINDED OR A GAMER TO ENJOY VR – IT IS VERY EASY TO USE AND WE ARE SURE YOU WILL BE ADDICTED AFTER YOUR FIRST EXPERIENCE!
Room prices are £40.00 per hour per group (1 – 4 people).
