D-BOX and The Virtual Reality Company Partnering on New VR Experiences

    Accompanying the release of The Martian starring Matt Damon was virtual reality (VR) project The Martian VR Experience. Created by D-BOX, The Virtual Reality Company and The Third Floor, it put viewers into the shoes of Damon’s character he struggled to survive on Mars. Today D-BOX has announced it’ll be resuming its partnership with The Virtual Reality Company for several upcoming VR projects.

    One project is a cinematic action-adventure experience, but currently content details on this or the others planned are being kept under wraps.

    “We are very honoured to work with VRC and TTF, some of the most talented and creative people in the world of virtual reality,” said Claude Mc Master, president and CEO of D-BOX. “The collaboration of these groups is a testimony to D-BOX’s expertise and ability to make stories more believable through immersive high-fidelity motion systems.”

    “For far too long, we have been using minimal senses to enjoy entertainment experiences,” said Guy Primus, CEO and Co-Founder of VRC. “Together with D-BOX and TTF, we are excited to introduce touch and movement on a larger scale and bring the immersive experiences closer to home usage and participation.”

    Together, the teams will collaborate, along with The Third Floor, to complete a Previs interface for D-BOX motion system under the Unreal Gaming engine platform.
