Company description

Active Reality is like Virtual Reality but 10X the experience!

So let's take a step back and explain what Virtual Reality (VR) is first.

VR is a technology involving a headset with 3D vision and sound that allows you to feel like you are somewhere else (a virtual world). We like to describe it as being “in” a game or movie-like experience, not just watching it on a TV screen. You can look around and hear everything around you, just as if you are there. The first time you experience it, the immersion can take your breath away! The only thing that breaks the feeling of total immersion is you are not moving, but have to use a controller to move around the virtual world.

With Active Reality, we achieve full immersion! We use advanced technology and sensors in an ‘arena’ that allows you to move around as you would in ‘real life’. All experiences are multiplayer, so you and friends are in the same physical and virtual worlds. You are able to see your friends' avatars. You can all run, walk, jump and even 'high five' all in the virtual world. You become fully immersed and totally forget about the ‘outside world’, it is truly mind blowing!

Active Reality is as active as using some of the gym equipment, so forget about limiting ‘screen time’, your heart will be racing, you’ll have a huge grin and you’ll be craving more.

Trust us, once you have experienced Active Reality, you will see this as the future of active leisure.
