The Platform

Designed simultaneously with our debut VR story – launching at SXSW in 2018 – we created the ultimate haptic interactive story experience that leverages years of interactive design knowledge found within Meow Wolf’s Creative Studios.

A versatile haptic sensory platform, created using a modular subframe. The system allows for creators and storytellers to access high level haptic tools in a multi-purpose way. An amazing platform for music, game, and story-driven VR or CAVE content.

Multi-user interaction or media selection via a second control surface. Letting viewers choose their own story or interact with the virtual player.
