Sony Square has opened a new interactive exhibit that enables visitors to help save Jumanji through an interactive game that utilizes haptic technology from Sony, which recreates the sense of touch by producing dynamic and expressive vibrations.
For this exhibit, visitors put on 3D glasses and a haptic vest, pick a character for the game, and get “dropped” into the jungle. The goal of the game is to retrieve a jewel that will protect Jumanji from grave danger. But the quest is not easy. There are animals in the jungle that stand in the way of success. As the player travels through the game, the haptic vest will enable them to feel the stones, branches and coconuts the animals throw at them to slow their pursuit of the jewel.
The Jumanji exhibit will be featured at Sony Square NYC from November 30 through January 8, 2018.
The Jumanji experience is restricted to those over six years old. Children under 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Sony Square NYC is located at 25 Madison Avenue and is open to the public Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. For more information, visit www.sony.com/square-nyc/.
