What does VR mean?
With the help of virtual reality, anyone can experiment flying, can travel to the Moon or, why not, Mars. Anyone can turn into a superhero or can be a character in a story. Imagination is the only limit. Our studio is the gateway to these fantastic experiences.
What is virtual reality? VR
Virtual Reality is a computer-generated environment that lets you experience a different reality. Through a headset or a pair of VR glasses and a controller, you are taken into a new world, where you can explore, play or experiment new sensations.
What is augmented reality? AR
At first sight it resembles virtual reality, which can also be used through mobile terminals, but these technologies and experiences are completely different. Virtual reality requires immersing into a virtual environment without keeping contact through the senses with the world around one self. On the other hand, augmented reality superimposes 3D objects over real life objects in order to create the sensation that they are right there, in front of your eyes, whilst keeping touch with the real world.
What is mixed reality? MR
Mixed reality has a similar definition to that of augmented reality, but opposed due to the fact that instead of superimposing digital text and images over real reality, this technology tries to create an environment where the user treats objects like they actually exist there. For example, Skype or videos played in the Microsoft HoloLens, but this technology is moving further to 2D screenings where viewers can follow the VR user in the medium the virtual reality program projects.
Can I play in VR even if I'm not really a gamer?
Of course, anyone can experiment in VR. Not all the experiences available on VR systems are games, so you can draw in 3D, watch documentaries or even take on walk on the bottom of the oceans. It’s only up to you what you feel like trying, and our studio features a large variety of experiences where you can choose from.
Can children play in VR?
Of course, virtual reality is an area available for trying for people of any age, but we do recommend it to children above the age of 7, that should be under adult supervision. If you feel like it, you can also bring your grandparents to they can enjoy a truly amazing experience.
What type of headsets do you have?
You can play with the HTC Vive, which, at the moment, has the best technology on the market and the largest number of experiences available, but you can also try the Oculus Rift.
Can I bring my friends?
We recommend it! Contrary to expectations VR has a very social element to it. There are a number of games available for multiplayer, all you have to do is book a reservation. If you need more details, our team is ready to help with hands-on advice, always testing the experiences we have available at the studio.

Can anyone play, even if disabled?
VR systems can be used by anyone, as long as head, hands and neck movements are possible. Some games, though, can trigger motion sickness, so if you know you are sensitive please be careful. Our request goes out also towards those with epilepsy since some experiences can trigger a crisis. If you’re wearing glasses, it’s a matter of adaptability since you might or might not need to use them together with the headset.
