There is a new café in Croydon where you can play video games using a virtual reality headset.
It was 11 months in the making for Limitless-VR’s co-founders Mike Bacchus and Simon Jones, but they both agree that the wait has been worth it. “You can immerse yourself in whatever floats your boat,” Mr Jones said. “From drifting along a candlelit cave in a canoe, to fighting zombies, archery, looking at the world from space and many other games and experiences. Multi-player mode is also available on some of the best titles. There is also a F1 simulator for those who fancy their chances as the next Lewis Hamilton.”
Finding the right location proved difficult for the pair. But as fate would have it, the building they and their neighbours lived in (79 High Street) was originally a theatre in Croydon. So with a little bit of elbow grease, they were able to make their dream a virtual reality. Throughout December they are offering free 10 minute taster sessions on some of the most popular games. Prices start from £20 to hire one rig for 25 minutes, with each rig being able to accommodate four people.
