It was in Scott Vandonkelaar’s garage in Melbourne, Australia, that Tim Ruse, Kyel Smith, and Scott himself, the founders of Zero Latency, began working on the first-ever free-roaming virtual reality prototype (that is, where it is possible to move). The prototype was revealed for the first time at the 2014 Melbourne Pause Fest, two years after the start of its development: an instant success.
Building on their success, the three founders launched a public funding campaign and with the help of Carthona Capital, they were able to start Zero Latency Melbourne. In August 2015, Zero Latency’s first virtual reality room opened those doors. Now established in 27 countries on 4 continents and with over 75 locations in operation, Zero Latency is THE undisputed leader in free moving virtual reality (FRVR).
