Vicon Cameras and Evoke Software Power the New “Amber Sky 2088” Experience for Sandbox VR as the First Step in the New Partnership; 40 New Sites to be Announced Soon
Today, motion capture leader Vicon announces a new collaboration with VR gaming pioneer, Sandbox VR, to bring about the next generation of immersive experience. By utilizing Vicon’s renowned motion capture cameras and its location-based VR (LBVR) software Evoke, the Hong Kong-based Sandbox VR wants to transport up to six people at a time into a future where the fate of humanity lies in the balance, in a new type of VR experience that takes you above the clouds and beyond.
Creators of some of the most advanced VR experiences in the world, Sandbox VR’s adventures resemble movies where the players become the characters. With two proprietary AAA-quality games already in operation across Sandbox VR’s seven locations, for its third and most ambitious title, Amber Sky 2088, a new motion capture solution was needed. In the futuristic game, users step into the role of androids, granting players abilities far beyond the average human while still scaling the game to their actual movements. To accurately convey that for multiple users in a free-roam environment, precision tracking and flexible scalability were vital. For that, Sandbox VR turned to Vicon.
