In a nondescript former glass factory in Brooklyn, a start-up is attempting to pioneer a gear-less future of virtual reality — and hoping consumers will pay hundreds of dollars to partake in that vision.
Here’s the catch: At a time when the fulcrum of VR tech revolves around the use of cumbersome hardware, Volume’s selling point is creating interactive 3-D experiences that don’t use headgear or glasses.
It’s part of what founder Shawn Frayne calls a “contrarian bet” he anticipates will become the future of a VR sector that’s a recent report by Goldman Sachs said was rapidly morphing into a juggernaut worth at least $82 billion.
