Birdly VR, the breathtaking VR flight simulator designed by SOMNIACS from Switzerland, is making its first public appearance in China since its prototype launch in 2013.

Birdly fulfills the fantasy of flying like a bird. The flight simulator recreates full-body flight experience instinctively with arms and hands — movements correlating to the flapping of wings or moving of a tail just as a bird might do.

The sense of flying is also enhanced through visual and audio effects, together with a synchronized ventilation system to simulate the breeze during the flight.

Fantasy Land

Fantasy Land, housed in a 280 square meter venue, is divided into two parts: VR Cinema and VR Experiences.

The VR Cinema, powered by Jaunt China’s proprietary VR cinema and exhibition technology, is dedicated to screening the best VR titles that have been shortlisted by most prestigious international film festivals, with a rotating weekly playlist.

VR Experience

The VR Experiences is designed to tantalize audience’s sense in four different thematic zones: “Light Stage”, “The Anywhere Door”, “Nature Extinction”, and “Space Walk”.

Fantasy Land is the first exhibition exclusively developed and hosted by Jaunt China and opens to the public today and runs through September 2.
