Ocean Rift is the world's first VR aquatic safari park. Explore a vivid underwater world full of life including dolphins, sharks, orcas, turtles, sea snakes, rays, manatees, sea lions, whales, and even dinosaurs!

Realities – glückauf!
At the end of 2018, Germany's last Coal Mine will end its operations – marking nothing less than the end of an era. We ventured into Germany's industrial heartland, the Ruhr area, for a final descent more than 1200m below ground, scanning the tunnels of Prosper Haniel to preserve this piece of industrial history in volumetric & photorealistic VR for the generations to come.

Realities – Kölner Dom
Go on an exclusive tour through a marvel of Gothic architecture, uncover stories from it's eventful history and explore parts of this UNESCO World Heritage Site that are off limits for normal visitors! We partnered up with German public-broadcasting institution WDR to bring one of Germany's most iconic landmarks into VR - the Cologne Cathedral.

Are you ready for the ultimate thrill ride? Take a dive into the adrenaline-pumping world of wingsuit flying with RUSH! Soar down mountainsides at breakneck speeds. Weave through canyons, dodge outcrops, and plummet down sheer drops as you race towards the finish line.

VR Regatta – The Sailing Game
A thrilling, inspiring sailing experience awaits you on the high seas. We invite all sail veterans and beginners to take a relaxing expedition on the Akalana Islands

The VR Museum of Fine Art
Explore a virtual museum in room-scale VR: see famous sculptures in full, 1:1 scale and see famous paintings without the limitations of glass and security guards.
