Virtual Reality, or VR for short, is the big thing of 2016. While it isn’t new in itself, this is the year where consumers will get the chance to enter this field and there is no shortage presented VR headsets. But VR is one of those things that is tough to describe and it is also tough to show off with traditional videos and images; it is something that has to be experienced first hand to fully get what it is all about and be able to grasp the full concept.

Overclockers UK is known for its line-up of gaming ready PCs in all sizes and calibers and they’re naturally on board with VR too. They’ve now proudly announced the extension to their showroom that will provide a permanent Vive Room Scale VR Experience in the Midlands.

The new Room Scale VR allows users with a Vive to move around and interact with a virtual environment while staying in the comfort of their own home. Overclockers UK created this new 20 square meters sized showroom to allow users to truly test this experience using hardware built together by Overclockers UK and that has been Virtual Reality Certified.

The Overclockers UK Room Scale VR Experience is set to launch with a special event, which will take place at the Overclockers UK Newcastle-Under-Lyme showroom on the 19th of March. This event is open to the public and there is an online booking system in place allowing users to reserve their very own VR Experience.

You don’t need to worry if you can’t make it on March the 19th as the Room Scale VR Experience will be a permanent feature at the Overclockers UK store. Besides the showroom, Overclockers UK also launched a new mini-site that is a collection of all the relevant VR information.

The Vive headset needs to be powered by something and OC UK has new and certified systems ready for the Vive, starting with the entry level system for £749 and moving up to the titan that starts at £1314.95. As always, you can further configure and modify these systems before you purchase.Virtual Reality hardware can also be purchased directly with everything from upgrade parts to your current system on to VR compatible peripherals. All in one place, and now also live testable.
