Local VR startup at Dunedin's Vogel Street Party

Monday November 4, 2019

Vogel Street and surrounds took on a party-like atmosphere and celebrated all that is great about Dunedin last month. People of all ages came along and experienced some amazing local talent and learnt a thing or two about our great city. 

SIGNAL Dunedin invited Gfactor Sports CEO, Rhys Gardner, and his team to display their Virtual Reality Codrivr Driving Simulator at our stand, in the studio’s building at 123 Vogel Street.

Rhys, a rally car driver from Southland, developed the simulator to teach kids and adults how to control a vehicle on ‘real life’ roads, in a safe way. Families enjoyed turns on the driving simulator throughout the day.

A huge thanks to Claire and Rhys from Gfactor Sports for your time and providing the entertainment for our site visitors.
