Visited June 2017
Sandbox opened in London’s Brick Lane to offer a venue for product launches, technology demos and interaction with the public.
I soon learned they had setup 4 gaming PC’s and 4 HTC Vive systems for the launch of the new “Star Trek Bridge Crew” VR game.
Heading there on Monday morning I found myself alone without other players but thankfully the game has AI crew so my game was on!
As no one else arrived I was lucky to have a full hour session to myself and thoroughly enjoyed captaining the Enterprise in VR.
The VR set-up was on the top floor above their main room below which had all kinds of other cool stuff to play with including an amazing hologram device.
Without any doubt my highlight was getting to check out a disassembled HTC Vive…
Big thanks to the friendly staff at Sandbox for showing me around and letting me have an awesome Star Trek Bridge Crew session.
