Calling all gamers, technophiles, and avid lovers of all things innovative and fun: Hampshire-based technology company Novatech are excited to announce their endeavour to run their state-of-the-art virtual reality simulators for 24 hours to raise money for Children in Need.
Your eyes haven’t deceived you, we really have lost our minds. For an entire day and night, our staff will be stepping out from reality.
From 9AM Friday 17th November until 9AM Saturday 18th November 2017, our determined staff will experience virtual reality sessions on our advanced Atomic A3 motion simulator chairs, connected to powerful commercial computers with high-end Oculus Rift VR headsets, within driving simulators to help raise funds for Children in Need.
And we need your help to race ahead and raise as much money for Children in Need as possible. For our sanity’s sake, we hope you’re feeling generous!
Please check out our Facebook and Twitter for more information on how you can watch and donate in real time as this exciting, unique technological endeavour unfolds.
Let’s test our limits and use virtual reality to make charity a reality for those children in need.
Everything will be streamed live on our Twitch here > https://go.twitch.tv/novatechteamgaming
