EXPLORE VIRTUAL WORLDS
The Hubneo Virtual Reality Lab located in Manhattan, NYC provides a space for people to immerse themselves in virtual worlds using state of the art VR equipment and unique full motion VR simulation systems. These interconnected simulation systems allow for an unparalleled level of VR immersion, while facilitating maximum levels of collaboration, social interaction and healthy competition between gamers.
We use seated motion rigs for racing, flight, and space simulations. Our active walking omni-directional treadmills are designed for first person action games and shooters. All of our simulators are tested and optimized based on feedback from actual racers, pilots and hardcore gamers.
Room-Scale Virtual Reality
In addition to motion rigs, we offer large scale untethered room-scale VR. These VR stations are ideal for active VR eSports games along with other action or exploration games.
Our systems are interconnected and optimized for multiplayer gaming sessions, offering Co-op and PvP modes.
Old School Gaming + VR
While you are waiting for your turn or just chilling out after your VR session, the Hubneo lounge offers a diverse library of old-school arcade-style console games.
SIMULATORS & GAMES
R & D
Hubneo seated VR simulation rigs are designed and built in collaboration with our partners at Gotham Machine, one of NYC's premier metal fabrication and prototyping shops.
After initial evaluation, the full motion VR simulators are shipped to the Hubneo Virtual Reality Lab in the Lower East Side, Manhattan for further testing and optimization.
The final stage is when you - our patrons - play in VR using the rigs at our NY’s arcade and gaming center. Your feedback is then used to build even more advanced systems. That is why our Manhattan studio is called The Lab; part VR center, part open-source testing facility, and not so much a traditional Video Arcade.
