March 22, 2021 – Victory Square Technologies Inc. portfolio company Immersive Tech, a creator of immersive virtual reality (VR) experiences, has today announced that it has entered into an agreement with magician & celebrity YouTube creator Chris Ramsay on an exclusive immersive experience that will be featured on his channels to a collective 6.4 million fans.
“We are huge fans of Chris Ramsay and couldn’t be more thrilled to be teaming up with him to provide an immersive experience like no other!” said Immersive Tech CEO Tim Bieber. “While the nature of this highly anticipated experience will be kept confidential until the video premieres, I promise all that it will be a truly engaging experience that will invite fans and the public to actively participate in a companion experience.” Bieber added, “I know that this announcement will be the start of a long and productive relationship with Mr. Ramsay”.
According to Immersive Tech, the project with Ramsay will have narrative tie-ins to the company’s upcoming flagship ‘UNCONTAINED’ hyper-immersive virtual reality experience (shown below), offering fans an opportunity to be part of the story themselves.
Immersive Tech’s experience lies in creating and launching interactive escape rooms for Family Entertainment Centers. The company stated that its upcoming UNCONTAINED virtual reality experience leverages Immersive Tech’s design expertise and brings free-roam arcade VR to another level by adding in additional features, such as a full range of environmental haptic feedback, including dynamic blasts of heat and cold, motion floors, environmental spatial audio, scent, and physical interactions – all of which help to create a more immersive “5D experience”.
Chris Ramsay commented: “I am stoked to be teaming up with my fellow Canadian experiential experts at Immersive,” adding, “I am impressed with the company’s trailblazing attitude and technology as it positions itself to be the global leader in the emerging AR/VR – LBE based products through UNCONTAINED”.
Immersive Tech also noted that it is planning and preparing for a public listing in Q2 of 2021. The company plans to grow with its UNCONTAINED experience product offering with strategic builds and sales commencing this year.
