The Void is one of the most immersive experiences available. It is pretty much as close to Star Trek’s Holodeck as you will find. First opening in New York at Madame Tussauds last year, the experience puts you inside a Ghostbusters-themed narrative that ingeniously helped explain why you’re wearing a backpack. When you’re in VR, you forget it’s a PC on your back and realize it’s actually a proton pack for catching ghosts.
Starting today, visitors to Lindon, Utah, where the startup is based, will be able to see this incredible experience. It becomes the third Void location after a recent opening in Dubai. We’ve also confirmed with The Void that the location in Lindon will feature the upgraded hardware we spotted in February, bringing the resolution and frame rate up to par with that of consumer PC-powered VR headsets folks have at home.
The Void is a startup that spent much of last year designing a gun peripheral and a VR helmet that could roll off an assembly line in preparation for the targeted roll-out of 20 “stages” this year. The startup calls them stages because they are finely tuned to deliver a single narrative paired with environmental effects like heat and wind to match the story.
