Here are some of the questions we’ve been asked recently about Virtual Reality and our company:
What does XP Entertainment do, exactly?
We bring a virtual reality entertainment system to your private or public event and have a representative there on-site to ensure you have the best experience possible. We also bring our smaller, more headsets for a small taste of the full experience to entertain multiple people at once.
What does the XP in your company name mean?
XP is short for ‘Experience’. Our focus is to provide you with an amazing experience you’ll want to share with others.
What is Virtual Reality?
Virtual Reality (VR) is a brand new experience that has been introduced to the tech industry. A user is able to wear a headset and become completely lost in another world (there are thousands to choose from).
Any health issues I should disclose?
Yes. We will ask you before your turn if you have a history of epilepsy in your family, vertigo, inner ear balance issues or heart conditions. While we do not recommend playing if you have a history of epilepsy, we will provide a good experience for you if you have any of the other conditions.
Will the experience make me dizzy or give me motion sickness?
No. The games and apps we provide do not disorient you. You are in control of your own movement and it will feel like movement in the real world.
I wear glasses, would I have to take them off?
No. Unless the frames are very large, you should be able to wear the headset comfortably with your glasses. Your eyesight is the same in VR as it is in the real world, so if you are very nearsighted in the real world, far-away objects in VR will appear blurry.
My colleagues and I are not gamers. Will we enjoy it?
Absolutely! While we do have games for the system, we have access to many different types of experiences that require much less interaction. Walk on the surface of mars, stand in a dark, foggy forest, or swim with the fishies 20,000 leagues under the sea.
Can children play?
While we have been successful at providing an experience for smaller children, we found that the headset is too large for children. The headset was built for a fully grown adult head and the lenses are positioned for certain eye distances.
Can two or more people play together at the same time?
Not yet. We are currently working on the ability to have multiple headsets ‘talk’ to each other in order to provide multiplayer.[/toggle]
There will be X number of people at my event – will XP be able to entertain them all?
We hope so! Keep in mind that maybe 25% of your guests will not try it, but absolutely everyone enjoys watching others play in virtual reality. Also – In addition to our full entertainment unit, we provide access to smaller portable VR units. We recommend providing less time to those playing to increase the number of participants per hour.
Those that are watching, can they see what the player sees and is reacting to?
Yes! We bring a projector or television to your event so you can see why the player is flailing his/her arms wildly while laughing and smiling.
How do you avoid the spread of germs?
Safety and hygiene are our primary concerns before fun and entertainment. We wipe down our waterproof mask with bacterial wipes in-between uses to ensure no one gets sick.
How do I book an event?
