More about Arctic Fox VR technology

Marking its debut in Southeast Asia, the Arctic Fox VR technology is a fully wireless and untethered system. Players don only a wireless headset that features a high definition screen and gaming headphones for an immersive surround sound experience.

Without the burden of cumbersome cables or backpack computers that hinder physical movement, the system allows the player free movement within a 5 metre x 5 metre (25 square metres) physical space, thereby enhancing the immersive factor of the virtual reality experience.

Eight infrared cameras mounted on a truss keep track of the headsets and gameplay pistol positions in 3D where the player’s entire body becomes the controller for the game. Players can move around in game as freely as they would like – walk, jump, duck, dodge, and even leopard crawl.

Equipped with a software that maps the movements onto the players’ positions within the game, the corresponding virtual visuals are then fed wirelessly to the headsets worn by players with no discernible lag time between the players’ physical movements and corresponding visuals within the game.

Ready to be ushered into unparalleled thrills? Horror fans will relish the adrenaline rush as Bugis Junction and Bugis+ bring them on a brand-new experience where their worst nightmares come to life with the latest in VR technology.
