Back in September 2015 VRFocus reported that VRstudios, a Seattle-based company working on a full motion wireless virtual reality (VR) system named VRcade, had raised some $1.3 million USD in funding. Little has been heard from the team since but it has today been announced that it has partnered with a Korean company named Simuline to offer its location-based tech and experiences in other regions of the world such as Korea, Africa, and the Middle East.
The deal will see the pair create new experiences and products for use within specific locations such as arcades. Their work will be showcased this week at the DEAL conference and exhibition show in Dubai from 19th – 21st April.
“Simuline looks forward to partnering with VRstudios, a global powerhouse in virtual reality entertainment and commercial enterprise solutions,” said Isaac Ha, Head of Overseas Sales, of Simuline. “VRstudios’ flexible VR platform, distinctive abilities, and long-term customer engagement approach make them an outstanding partner to enhance our offerings to customers and partners. Working with VRstudios will bring new ways to differentiation Simuline from other attraction companies.”
