HEADRUSH

Strap on your 3D glasses and
go head-to-head in this thrilling
'holographic 3D' VR action game.

Dodge the obstacles while you fly
through the 3D world to try
and beat your opponent to the finish.

You can catch your opponent's slipstream to gain more speed,
so be sure to shake them off
when you're in the lead!

Headrush uses head-tracking
and large 3D screens to open 'magic'
VR windows to the virtual world - allowing for intense full-body interaction.

This comfortable type
of Virtual Reality can make you
really want to get a workout!

Headrush' gameplay is truly intuitive,
and relies on natural reflexes.
No instructions are needed:
If you can move, you can play!

The installation is easy to set up.
Using (ultra) short throw projectors,
it does not require 'extra' floorspace.
