Disney-Backed Company Tyffon to Open ‘Free Roam’ VR Room in Los Angeles

Virtual Reality company Tyffon will be opening a free roam VR room in Los Angeles later this year.

For those who don’t know, a free roam room is where gamers can walk around an actual room with VR equipment on, enhancing the gaming experience to make it feel like you’re actually in the place you’re looking at on your VR headset.

This technology is becoming more popular with competing companies like
Melbourne-based Zero Latence building their own free roam rooms as well.

This marks the first VR room from Tyffon in the United States, already having three in Japan.

Besides The Walt Disney Company, Tyffon investors include
SEGA Sammy Holdings, Mizuho Capital, Tokyu Recreation, and Canal Ventures.

Tyffon secured $7.8 million in funding as part of this expansion.
