Custom electronics building commences…

We’ve been busy in the background progressing through the earlier stages of the planning and prototype development before we commence on the large scale physical build-out in the next couple of weeks. Our superstar build lead and custom electronics whiz Toby “Wintermute” Corkindale has been especially hard at work with some of the custom electronics aspects of the project. Creating something like the out-of-body VR experience means we’re working areas there really aren’t any off-the-shelf solutions, and that requires patience and a steady hand with extremely small and fiddly screws!

Concurrently, the prototying for our structure decoration has been underway, with unique and distinctive plan for creating external structure visuals coming together…
