Star Strong Capital has provided growth funding to Positron Voyager, an innovator at the forefront of the cinematic virtual reality (VR) entertainment industry. California-based VR company Positron created the world’s first Voyager™ pod chair, featuring proprietary motion control haptics, customizable LED cabin lighting, and even scent, for a fully immersive cinematic virtual reality experience. The custom chair pods are deployed to entertainment venues worldwide including museums, theaters, tourist attractions, cruise ships and malls. Positron produces original VR content, and has also partnered with Universal Studios, Disney, Walmart, Verizon and leading VR studios for custom VR content.
Positron will use the capital to add staff and deploy new technology developments in response to increasing demand from cultural and entertainment venues worldwide.
“Creators and audiences who have experienced Positron know first-hand why it is the best VR platform for immersive entertainment, and this funding will allow us to now deploy seven VR Cinema locations opening in the second half of 2021. Star Strong Capital has become a valuable partner in our growth and we’re excited for our future ahead,” said Jeffrey Travis, CEO of Positron.
