IMAX Has Built The Ultimate VR Arcade In Los Angeles
IMAX gives visitors the chance to try out room-scale VR games in a newly opened location in Los Angeles
Though virtual reality continues to grow in popularity, the high cost of setting up an entire room to take advantage of it can put it out of reach for many. To help introduce VR to those who can’t afford it, IMAX created 14 VR arcade pod rooms for users to try out room-scale games. IMAX opened its first one in The Grove shopping center in Los Angeles.
IMAX plans to open up five more in other cities, such as Shanghai and New York City.

Walter is a Belgian-born technology entrepreneur. He started Scanadu in 2010 after a life-altering family emergency. His goal is to build a suite of smartphone-esque medical tools that reimagine access to healthcare for the people. Prior to Scanadu, de Brouwer ran One Laptop Per Child Europe and founded Starlab. His companies were involved in two IPOs and the merger of Eunet with Qwest Communications (now CenturyLink).
