What is Merlin VR Labs?
We created Merlin VR Labs so that we offer high-end Virtual Reality experiences to the masses. Virtual reality is introducing us to new worlds filled with endless possibilities. Our mission is to provide expertise, cutting-edge, and up-to-date equipment and applications so that any one person can experience the power of virtual reality at a reasonable cost.
Our Rolling on Virtual Reality (ROVR) truck is a self-sustaining mobile virtual reality unit loaded with the latest virtual reality equipment and experiences. We operate much like a food truck, with the ability to park our ROVR, open the side door, turn on the power and start engaging with patrons.
Equipment and Software
Building your own virtual reality computer and installing software takes a lot of time, energy, and money. This is where Merlin VR Labs comes in and meets you where you are. Our Rolling On Virtual Reality (ROVR) Truck carries the latest virtual reality equipment from HTC Vive and Oculus as well as a wide variety of the latest software. We want our guests to experience it now and hop on for the ride.
Check out what equipment we currently have available:
The HTC Vive is the first commercially available virtual reality headset that includes motion tracked hand controllers as well as a motion tracked headset. Participants use their entire body to play in the first ever Room Scale VR.
The Oculus Rift is the long awaited torch bearer of the virtual reality world. Starting as a kit for developers, the Rift has evolved into the top of the line motion tracked VR headset. Games are played with a XBox controller.
One of the coolest experiences we have done with these VR headsets is a racing simulator. Finally, being able to look around as you're driving has deepened the immerssiveness of the games available.
