‘Ghostbusters: Dimension’ Proves VR Potential Beyond Home Entertainment

Players are equipped with a visor, haptic suit, and "proton pack" and given free reign to walk two floors of a specially designed space to try and catch a variety of ghosts.

Ghostbusters: Dimension is a new fully immersive virtual reality experience taking place at Madame Tussaud’s in New York. Players are equipped with a visor, haptic suit, and “proton pack” and given free reign to walk two floors of a specially designed space to try and catch a variety of ghosts.

“The result is a stunning, ultra-realistic experience that proves there is potential in virtual reality beyond home entertainment,” writesTIME’s Lisa Eadicicco. “The experience’s virtual universe combines with the real world in a way that truly makes it feel like being teleported into a video game. I explored an entire apartment and even took an elevator ride all while enveloped in a virtual world. As I carefully scaled across a shaky fire escape on the ledge of a building, the floor beneath me began to creak and wobble. When villainous ghosts threw furniture at me, my suit pulsed and vibrated. A gust of wind swept the room after my teammate and I had successfully taken down our final enemy.”
