Evening all, as you'll likely know from my YouTube channel and videos on this, I'm opening a VR Arcade in my local city of Gloucester in the UK. Hopefully this will become the first of many and eventually become a haven for everyone who wants to give VR a go and bring people together in the community around them, sharing the experience.
The project is fully funded but there are always upgrades that can be made and if you guys have a few pennies spare to send over I'll put them to good use in the arcade.
If we raise £2,000 I'll upgrade our 6 VR racing cockpits to include wind blowers which will add another level of immersion to the experience available for visitors (it'll cost £2,400 but we'll do them all if we reach that amount). If we don't raise the full £2,000 we'll upgrade them in pairs and upgrade the other stations over time.
If we raise more, we'll put that towards Vive Wireless Adaptors for our VR booths to give visitors more freedom from wires.
We're aiming to open the arcade on 1st November, but this is subject to change depending on a lot of factors and may become mid-November.
Everyone who donates to this GoFundMe, no matter the amount, will get their name on a wall in the first VRXPERIENCE arcade. We'll put together a word cloud of names to stick to the wall (something cool), the more you donate, the larger your name will be compared to others. The final size of the word cloud is TBC (depends on final wall space available) but should be between 1-2m square. Forever will you show your support for VR and become one of the RaMarcables!
Please note in the comments of your donation if you prefer a different name to be included, we reserve the right to amend names if they're inappropriate (it's a family environment and I know what you lot are like!).
A MASSIVE THANK YOU in advance for any donations you make, and stay tuned to http://www.youtube.com/ramarcus
for updates on the arcade, how it's progressing and how it turns out. They'll be sooo much content coming from myself and the arcade over the coming months, exciting stuff!
Have a VIRTUAL HIGH FIVE!
