The VOID: a VR theme park coming to Pleasant Grove, Utah

by: Edgar CervantesAugust 8, 2015

Virtual Reality is becoming highly accessible, but you can only do so much when using your consumer-optimized VR headsets. The real dream is to have complete immersion, and for that you need a dedicated area (a large one) and more advanced systems. Call it a VR arcade, if you will.

For Pleasant Grove, Utah residents this is becoming more than a far-fetched geeky idea. The VOID will be a virtual reality theme park where attendees can play games in full immersion. People would use a Rapture HMD (head-mounted display), a Rapture Vest and Rapture Gloves. This combination of devices would provide visuals, audio, haptic feedback and hand control.


That is not where the immersion ends, though. The VOID team is going all out with this one, providing full 4D elements. There will be smells, temperature control, changes in air pressure, moisture alterations and more. They are creating a complete experience that will make you feel as if you are really in the game.

Gaming experiences will also alternate. As you can see in the video, there will be war, flight, scary and even medieval fantasy experiences. At launch, there will only be 3 experiences, but more are to come as The VOID team and other studios create content.

But what about those darn lines?! Well, The VOID team is glad to tell you there will be no such nuisance at their theme park. Users will schedule their date and time beforehand. The company relates the experience to that of an IMAX theater – it will be full of great technology, impressive experiences and a much more organized system.

You can be sure I will take that road trip to see what this is all about! Will you? Sadly, we will have to wait a bit before we get to enjoy these high-tech experiences. The VOID is set to launch in the summer of 2016.

  • Bartek Senczkowski

    I loving the “one plus two” for ability to modding my device in any way possible even by installing custom roms. But what I ain’t like that it is missing NFC functionality.

  • viktor

    Pity that only next sumer, buth it will be a nice new experince…

  • Alexander G.


  • Gary Cameron

    My wife loves her +1 with the bamboo case.

  • austinolet

    the oneplus one is my current device and I think the one plus 2 is a great successor, but the lack of wireless charging and NFC do bug me but it isnt a dealbreaker just yet.

  • D

    might just wait for +3

  • Yash

    i like it’s budget friendly price and the eye-catchy design.. what i dislike is use of snapdragon 810 chipset which is known for ultimate heating… other powerful chipsets like mediatek’s helio x10 or samsung’s exynos 7420 chipset…

  • Only for Fast Charging.. but for me the OnePlus 2 remain the Flagship killer 2016!

  • Mihai

    So sad that it doesn’t support NFC :( But it is the best phone for the price!

  • Martín Belgordsky

  • BuggyMD

    I love everything about this brand new phone, it simply rocks at this price range, whish I could buy it , but no money for a mobile upgrade :(

  • Carolina Isabel

    I love OnePlus2. I like the 13mp camara, the laser focus and the 4gb ram… But what I love the most is that baterry(!!!). I’m not loving that if I won I only won one OnePlus2 and not 2.

  • Bader

  • Jelle

    Amazing smartphone. Have the OPO, and I love this brand!

  • Naderabdelrahman

    Thanks for the opportunity guys!

  • IonicSandwich

    The flagship killer just got better. They improved it in all aspects. Many would think that the going with 1080p display instead of a QHD would be a dealbreaker for this phone, but not me. It just means longer battery life.

  • atomicreator
