Grabbing a drink and hopping into a fantasy world may seem like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it is all possible at Augment Arcade.
Augment Arcade, a new VR bar and arcade in Shaw, is equipped with four HTC Vive machines, separated by curtains to provide a more intimate setting for parties. The arcade also uses gaming technologies by Alienware, NVIDIA and Intel. Each player is given a set of VR goggles and two controllers that wrap around the wrists while using the games.
Augment Arcade is opened on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 p.m. to midnight and on Saturdays from noon to 8 p.m. Visitors can experience zombie hunts, test their reflexes in Fruit Ninja, explore the world with Google Earth, make art come to life in Google Tilt Brush and play more than 20 other games.
