About this project
We are raising funds to build a production grade, fully immersive video game chamber, which will limit distractions and control the surrounding environment to enhance the gaming experience. This will be similar to the prototype in our video and images, but it will have more features and better overall usability. The Game Tank takes gaming to a whole new level, It has all the punch of a home theater, but can easily fit in your living room. We have tested our Game Tank extensively and worked out all the kinks. After almost a year of product development, we are convinced that anyone who enjoys video games will love this experience.
Our goal is to build a production grade model of the Game Tank that we can sell to the general public at an affordable price. We have completed the first huge step by building a fully functioning prototype, now we plan to create a production grade model which we can take to trade shows and gaming expos to let the general public try it out. Possible additional features of our new model include: built in 5.1 surround sound, a rumbling seat, desktop and drop down keyboard storage, an emergency escape hatch and a lightweight design. We know that once the general public gets a taste of the Game Tank, it will create a demand for fully immersive video game entertainment. We now need $15,000 to build our first four production grade Game Tanks. We will be using this money to fulfill contributor rewards, pay industrial engineers to help design a shippable version, buy materials and hardware, pay for building rental and possible legal/licensing fees.
Risks and challenges
There are many risks and challenges involved with completing our project. The biggest challenge will be advancing our prototype to a production grade model. The production grade model will need to be able to be boxed, shipped and easily assembled; similar to a piece of IKEA furniture. We will hire a CNC expert to help us with this step. As general contractors we know the design is sound,and as avid gamers we know the Game Tank is amazing fun!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
