Mummy Day Celebration Gets VR Motion Chair Treatment – VRScout


Those eerie looking VR motion chairs we
took for a spin during Sundance
are back again, this time
for a Mummy Day celebration in Hollywood over the weekend.

Inspired by the upcoming action-adventure movie, Universal
Pictures hosted The Mummy Day event at Hollywood &
Highland. Open to the general public and overlooking the main
event, a line of Voyager full-motion cinematic VR chairs were
setup to take guests on the zero gravity journey.

The Mummy Zero
Gravity Stunt VR Experience goes behind the scenes with Cruise
and Wallis as they perform the intense Zero G stunt as seen in
The Mummy. The VR experience is enhanced
by Positron’s Voyager platform, featuring guided
360-degree motion control, head-tracked 3D audio and haptic
integration—allowing you to experience the world of The
in an entirely new way.

“We’re thrilled to
offer moviegoers a sneak peek at the future of the theatrical
experience and a completely new level of immersion in VR
storytelling with Voyager,” said Jeffrey Travis, creator of the
VR chair and CEO of technology studio Positron.  “The
Mummy VR Zero Gravity Stunt Experience is truly a unique
immersive VR experience that’s enhanced by Voyager’s
revolutionary motion platform, allowing audiences to
experience the world of The Mummy in a way they could
only imagine.”
