Touted to be region’s first holographic gaming arcade, Holoverse opened at Oman Avenues Mall recently.
It has been opened by Al Tamman Group’s Grand Entertainment in partnership with Australia’s renowned immersive entertainment technology specialist, Euclideon Entertainment.
The gaming facility, Holoverse is located on the first floor of the mall and has six gaming tables where two players will be able to play per table at a time.
A senior spokesperson from Al Tamman Group said, “Hologram technology is closer to augmented reality and is a life-like 3D projection of an artificial environment, presented in the real world. Holoverse offers a new take on virtual reality entertainment through Euclideon’s Hologram Arcade Tables which are gaming tables, but with a twist; where two players can play simultaneously, leading to a significantly more social experience. Being the first-of-its-kind in not just Oman, but the region, we are confident Holoverse will attract the young and old alike.”
Euclideon Entertainment’s CEO Bruce Dell, speaking on the sidelines of the grand opening said, “Players don’t have to use VR helmets at Holoverse; they wear 3D glasses. Holoverse uses a totally different type of hologram technology, where objects are projected to appear in the air.”
Holoverse will be open throughout the week from 10am to 10pm.
