We’ve said it before: Video Games are the gateway drug to the tech sector. Well, if VRX Simulators were a drug, they’d definitely be a high-octane-full-throttle version of steroids.
VRX Ventures builds simulators right on the Island in Sidney, BC. Owner and Founder Rob Stanners started out with a $5k simulator and keeps blowing minds with every new model.
The current prototype, the 6-DOF Simulator is being built for a client and it is C-R-A-Z-Y.
It’s a racing bucket with a 5 point harness that has pistons built into it that move, shake and even lift you 8 feet off the floor! It’s a totally immersive experience that transports you to a Formula 1 type race car, or even a helicopter or fighter jet. In fact, Formula 1 racers actually use VRX simulators to train on!
The new 6-DOF even has 2 passenger seats attached to it. Rob Stanner’s vision is for fans to sit in the back as their favourite F1 racer takes them for a one-of-a-kind ride.
What’s next for VRX? Well, Rob Stanners has a plan that may involve taking over the world. He’ll start out little though, by building a theme park.
