IGNITE VR is a Virtual Reality Company that aspires to spread awareness about this new medium of communication.

History

Our Story

IGNITE VR was started by Roy Koo as a niche blog about Virtual Reality to provide event coverage, content reviews and general information. Over the year, IGNITE VR expanded to cover, participate and organize many VR related meetups, devtalks, roadshows, bootcamp, and demos. Through combined efforts with many local and regional partners, our local developers and enthusiasts were kept up-to-date with the latest VR development.

Our Breakthrough

IGNITE VR Arcade was opened from the 2 December 2016 to 24 May 2017 at Marina Square Shopping Mall to provide a physical VR place that is centrally located and provides access to VR experiences at affordable rates. We achieved our goal of jumpstart awareness of Virtual Reality in Singapore and are happy to say that at least 5000 people tried VR at our arcade during these short 6 months and even more people have seen VR in action as they walk pass our full length glass windows. We were the first to open in Singapore and that gave us and VR a lot of exposure in newspaper coverage (The Straits Time, The New Paper), magazines (ANZA Magazine), radio (987FM), as well as online media coverage (Youth.sg, Akiba Press, Mothership, The Culture Trip, VR-Zone, Forbes). Currently we are conceptualizing our next VR Arcade, intending to make it bigger and better.
