Arlington Heights, IL (PRWEB) May 11, 2015
Award-winning product development firm Optimal Design announced today it will be the technology development partner for THE VOID LLC’s self-titled virtual entertainment center (VEC). The VEC promises to deliver a more immersive, realistic experience for gaming enthusiasts than anything currently existing in the marketplace today.
THE VOID will feature state-of-the-art, proprietary hardware and software that overlay a virtual environment onto real-world objects, with further 4D enhancements such as wind, rain, scents and more. “By combining virtual and physical environments, we distinguish ourselves from the rest of the virtual reality pack,” said James Jensen, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of THE VOID. “More than watching a movie or playing a game, THE VOID will allow guests to truly live virtually any adventure.”
“We are fulfilling a promise of what a virtual reality experience can and should be,” stated Ken Bretschneider, CEO and co-founder of THE VOID. “Until now, we have only seen experiences like the ones soon to be available at THE VOID portrayed in science fiction film and novels. Our team is ecstatic to bring that dream to life. We truly believe it’s the future of entertainment.”
Optimal Design’s deep expertise in the integration of product design, engineering and technology—with specific experience in the wearable devices and mobile products industries—makes it the perfect partner for THE VOID, stated Optimal Design CEO and co-founder Sajid Patel. “We bring the know-how that is essential to the development of THE VOID’s virtual reality headset and haptic vest,” explained Patel. “We’re thrilled to take part in Ken Bretschneider’s vision and desire to deliver technology that is on the cutting edge of the virtual reality industry.”
