Berlin, August 10th, 2016 – With its relocation to a new office in Berlin, Illusion Walk has extended its virtual reality lab to a large 150m² scale to continue working on its product, the Immersive Deck. This unique real-time platform enables several users to walk and interact as teams in virtual worlds. After finishing its last test series, this holodeck technology can now be tested by single users and teams who register in the public beta program.
Jim Rüggeberg, CEO of Illusion Walk KG says: „We are very excited to announce the start of the Immersive Deck beta program. After two years of development behind closed doors, it’s now time to open the platform for interested beta testers and potential licensees. We expect to gain valuable feedback and first results of system key figures. Content development targeted at walkable, real-time VR holodecks is still at the very beginning and we also hope to get support from the VR community. Being in direct contact with the testers will help us enormously and the feedback will be directly used in our further development.”
Illusion Walk has developed a variety of demos for the Immersive Deck to showcase the possibilities of the platform. The beta testers will have access to the multiplayer VR gaming prototype – KolossVR – which can be played with up to four users simultaneously.
