vRotors

https://www.vrotors.com

vRotors is a real time, live drone gaming platform. From home, gamers put on VR headsets to enter virtual cockpits and fly real, remotely connected drones on courses located around the world. The cockpit screen is from the drone camera and the cockpit has full instrumentation including altitude, speed, and direction. Thereby, vRotors is opening real flight experiences to thousands of gamers from their homes.

vRotors is a groundbreaking shooter game using real drones with AR overlays for mission driven combat, scalable to thousands of players in gunner turrets in both traditional PC and VR game clients. Led by veteran game executive Neil Malhotra, co-founder of Acclaim Games, and John Zuur Platten, game designer of industry milestone AR games Niantic Ingress, Pokeman Go, and Jurassic World.

Gamers in VR headsets enter virtual cockpit from home, fly real, remotely located drones, flying in a course gamified with AR overlay.

vRotors has built an ultra-low latency platform for flying remotely located drones in real-time from inside virtual cockpits. Pilots located at home or the office put on standard VR headsets and can fly the drones in full immersion intuitively as if they were "inside" the drones themselves. The first application of the platform is in real-time drone gaming and later, the platform will support commercial applications as well.
