The company was founded by CEO Charlotte Santiago and CFO Nick Alcid who are members of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and The VR/AR association. They set out to offer games different than what people can play at home on systems such as Oculus Rift and Google Cardboard. “I didn’t want to pay $25 to play something that my next-door neighbor has,” Alcid said. Each game room has 10 cameras mounted on the ceiling which connect with motion-tracking systems on the helmets and guns players use, translating body movements into the game without any wires.
They also use wireless headphones which adds music and sound effects. Game sessions generally last 5-15 minutes, depending on players’ skill and the number of levels in a game (“Barking Irons,” for instance, has 17).
The Los Angeles Area Chamber supports local businesses and has a big presence in the local government. The VR/AR assoc. was founded to help those who are going into business of VR and or educate the public about what VR is. CFO Nick Alcid is also a co-chairman of two committees including Ecommerce Industry as well as the LBE Industry.
