The Gameboxes feature a range of technologies including projection mapping, touch screens, motion tracking and surround sound to deliver a fun and immersive experience with no need for headsets. We launched at the end of 2019 in London, and the results from our first five units in London Southbank, Manchester, Lakeside, Gravity Wandsworth and Dallas have been fantastic.
