Having the ability to immerse oneself in a live sporting event, concert or video game that allows you to virtually be in the game, concert or other event itself is an extraordinary experience.
The creation of Fantasy 360 Technologies Inc. is a natural extension of the successful track record Fantasy 6 has developed since its launch in the spring of 2015. The past year has seen Fantasy 6 sign an MOU to provide the BC Sports Hall of Fame in Vancouver a series of new galleries and exhibits featuring immersive sports technologies and innovative new VR applications around the Olympics, Football, Hockey, Auto Racing, Baseball, Basketball and more. Fantasy 6 also built a dynamic 360 Virtual Arena that was showcased at the Fan Village during the World Cup of Hockey in Toronto and the Heritage Classic in Winnipeg.
On the one hand, we’re building VR games and experiences to allow fans to score on a shootout against their favourite hockey goaltender or parachute out of an airplane to save the world. And, on the other hand, we’re already locked in on the ever-expanding role of VR for corporate staff training, from pilots in jet simulators to police preparing for ground situations. The combination of the two markets easily make VR one of the most robust sectors in tech.
