Talon Simulations Offers Affordable, High-Tech VR Motion Simulator
Talon Simulations (Booth #1758) is a new and growing company introducing itself to the attractions industry. Specializing in immersive and affordable out-of-home motion simulators, Talon is making virtual reality technology that once cost hundreds of thousands of dollars available to the attractions market for a fraction of that amount.
The company’s Atomic A3 simulator headset produces high-fidelity motion detail and can be used to create simulation experiences involving roller coasters, race cars, motorcycles, fighter jets, jet skis, or just about any other motion-centric encounter. The Atomic A3 is adjustable for different-sized guests.
“Currently, the simulator provides 2 to 3 DOF (degrees of freedom)—left/right, forward/backward—and a 4 DOF system is being introduced next year,” said Brandon Naids, the company’s CEO and co-founder.
The Atomic A3 is available in packages starting at $10,000. It can be experienced in a live roller coaster simulation at Skyline Attractions (Booth #5429).
