VR headsets are all the rage right now, aren’t they? They’re amazingly fun, too. Basically, Planet VR does the whole virtual reality thing, but in public! The guys over at Planet VR have put a lot of effort into creating a unique place to hang out, have a drink and enter the virtual world. They’re based locally to us, and our paths crossed because the team at Planet VR wanted a one-off shoot to capture images that could be used across their marketing materials. The Planet VR HQ just looks so futuristic, it’s like Total Recall meets DOOM. We think their aesthetics really set them apart from their competitors.
Planet VR’s mission, and one that we think is rather admirable, is to make virtual reality more accessible to people from across the spectrum. It’s all about creating a vibe, you know, somewhere different that you can go with friends and family. They host virtual reality parties, and are also renting out VR kits to people so they can use them at home! This funky business really does cater to a wide demographic, which we desperately wanted to highlight in our shoot.
