UNIS launches VR division
Virtuix, developer of the popular Omni motion platform, has launched a partnership with Fun VR Tech, a new division of Universal Space (UNIS) created to distribute Active VR experiences to the commercial entertainment market.
The partnership is an expansion of Virtuix’s collaboration with UNIS in China, where it has installed dozens of its Omni Arena gaming attraction.
“Our partnership with UNIS in China has exceeded our expectations,” said Jan Goetgeluk, founder and CEO of Virtuix. “UNIS has long standing expertise in the commercial entertainment market and has installed the Omni as part of their amusement packages in VR Arcades, Family Entertainment Centers, and shopping malls. While we are still fulfilling the remainder of our U.S. Kickstarter and Pre-Order packages, Fun VR Tech represents an opportunity for us to expand our successful UNIS partnership and make the Omni available to the digital out-of-home entertainment market globally.”
In addition to its Omni Arena packages, which contain either two or five Omnis, Fun VR Tech will also sell single Omni setups.
“Fun VR Tech hopes to make active VR of this kind widely available, allowing professionals and commercial entertainment businesses to take full advantage of this technological marvel,” said Steven Tan, general manager of UNIS.
Fun VR Tech has started selling its Omni Arena attraction in North America and South America with plans to expand to additional global markets in the future.
