Immersive social environment aims to provide rich cultural and educational experiences

Arizona-based game development company Timefire VR is developing a virtual reality city called Hypatia that will immerse people in an expansive environment. This ‘city of the future’ will enable visitors to lose themselves for hours, far surpassing the standard brief experiences of current VR demos.

The aim is to provide increased future interaction with VR, with a large space to explore and lots of things to do. There are more than 70 miles of streets in Hypatia, where citizens can stroll along the tree lined canals, watch a play, attend a concert, visit a museum, paint using 2D and 3D tools, explore, shop, or read a holographic book from their virtual smartphone.
