Developer units are shipping now, consumer units will start shipping February, 2018.
London – 14th December, 2017 – Elliott Myers and the team behind the Roto VR™ chair are pleased to announce that developer kits of their ground-breaking interactive Roto VR™ Chair – Roto VR™, are rolling off the production line and beginning to ship to development studios worldwide. Roto VR™ will begin shipping to consumers in February, 2018.
“The team have been working around the clock to get Roto VR™ final and shipment ready” commented Elliott Myers, CEO and creator of Roto VR™ “We’ve taken our time to ensure a top quality final product and I’m thrilled to confirm that units are beginning to ship, we will move to full production and all consumer orders will be fulfilled in early 2018. We’re super hyped because we know Roto VR™ will usher in a new era of unparalleled 360 VR immersion – and it’s affordable.”
It has been quite the journey for Roto VR™ since the first announcement back in 2015. Originally pitched as an Interactive VR Chair for VR games, the scope of the project has expanded to an incredible degree. Roto VR™ is now compatible with, compliments and enhances all AR, VR, 360 hardware AND software out of the box (except for PSVR).
“It’s certainly not just about gaming, we are fortunate to have a unique insight into a wide range of complimentary businesses / concepts,” noted Elliott Myers. For example:
• Blue chip companies are looking to VR to boost their brands as well as productivity
• Game arcades, shopping malls, hotels, airports and internet cafes are starting to adopt VR to boost business
• Universities, schools, movie theatres and stadiums are looking to transition towards interactive seating
• E-Sports, Theme Parks, Travel Agencies and Property Developers are investing VR for new customer engagement
We can’t wait to see how profoundly Roto VR™ is going to help to shape the landscape of seated interactivity worldwide.”
