Arguably one of the coolest inventions to come into the hands of the public, virtual reality goggles (or VR for short) have become both a national and worldwide phenomenon. People of all ages have tried them out and have witnessed the amazing graphics and experience the goggles give them. Whether the goggles give you the ability to fly or simply enjoy a simulation of everyday life, there is no doubt that VR technology is extremely fun and entertaining to many.

The bottom line is, though, that VR goggles are borderline too expensive for just the average person to purchase. Who has that kind of money to spend on another piece of technology? Well, there is some good news!

Soon to be opening in Howell is “Ctrl V” – a virtual reality arcade that allows everyday people of any age to come and play with VR technology for a while, all at a much lower price than what the average pair of VR goggles would cost.

Ctrl V has only established locations in Canada, but not anymore! They’re right in our community and are ready to give people the ultimate VR experience. Ctrl V provides VR “stations” that are equipped with a green screen room and a pair of VR goggles ready to use. In addition to the sight aspect of virtual reality, Ctrl V also provides complete audio and physical stimulation to make the VR experience feel truly real and supply their customers with an environment specifically meant for VR gaming.

While there is no set date as to when Ctrl V will be opening in the Howell Plaza on Route 9, they are being highly anticipated as arriving with a fantastic VR experience and a family fun arcade-like environment for everyone. Check out their website and the video below on what they are and what you can expect from their arcade.
