LOS ANGELES, CA August 1, 2016 Colossi LLC, the pioneer in field of interactive crowd gaming, announced today that they are partnering with the Virtual Reality Foundation to bring their crowd.game platform to the VRLA Summer Expo 2016. The expo will take place August 5th 6th 2016 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
“VRLA aims to provide a memorable experience to all of the attendees, going beyond the realm of AR and VR,” says Ben Skaggs, Cofounder of Colossi. “We’re very excited to bring something different to the table with our platform, giving everyone an experience they can all engage in together while they’re exploring the amazing VR lineup of the expo.”
Colossi’s proprietary crowd.game platform enables hundreds of people in a local space to engage with their interactive gaming content, using their smartphones.
