Middle East’s first holographic gaming centre opens

Middle East’s first holographic gaming centre opens

It has been opened by Al Tamman Group’s Grand Entertainment in partnership with Australia’s renowned immersive entertainment technologies specialist, Euclideon Entertainment.

The gaming facility, Holoverse is positioned on the first floor of the mall and has six gaming tables exactly where two players will be in a position to play per table at a time.

A senior spokesperson from Al Tamman Group mentioned, “Hologram technology is closer to augmented reality and is a life-like 3D projection of an artificial environment, presented in the real world. Holoverse offers a new take on virtual reality entertainment through Euclideon’s Hologram Arcade Tables which are gaming tables, but with a twist; where two players can play simultaneously, leading to a significantly more social experience. Being the first-of-its-kind in not just Oman, but the region, we are confident Holoverse will attract the young and old alike.”

Euclideon Entertainment’s CEO Bruce Dell, speaking on the sidelines of the grand opening mentioned, “Players don’t have to use VR helmets at Holoverse; they wear 3D glasses. Holoverse uses a totally different type of hologram technology, where objects are projected to appear in the air.”

Holoverse will be open all through the week from 10am to 10pm.
