Description: We’re Sandbox VR, and we’re the most advanced virtual reality experience in the world. We combine motion capture in real time with virtual reality technology to create a new medium that is the closest thing to the Star Trek holodeck that exists, and we’re bringing it to a neighborhood near you. We believe this is a new platform and medium that is something entirely different from VR as we know it. We don’t accept the digital dualism that segregates the virtual from the real. We believe the Sandbox experience isn’t just virtual reality — it’s better reality. It’s a better reality that transforms you and transports you. It’s experiences where you can bond with friends on new adventures. A reality where you can be what you want to be and go wherever you want to go. We think it’s nothing less than the ultimate and final medium of expression. Every new medium that we as human beings have created opened up new avenues of expression, increased fidelity of experience, and opened a new platform for distribution: from the painted image to the written word, from the first voice recordings to movies. We believe this new medium is not about better movies or a more immersive game. It’s something else entirely, and we as an industry will need to learn from the best of both mediums — movies and gaming. It’s a medium where narrative is just as important as agency and consequence.
