Everyone tells you what you can and can't do, sometimes you have to go against the negativity and believe in yourself. I want to make Virtual RealiTEA a reality and I need your help. 


What are we about?

vT (virtualrealiTEA) is a social concept where people can connect over a shared Virtual Reality (VIVE) experience. You're placed into a simulated reality and you experience a new sensation. It’s an opportunity to see giant whales up close, to fly, walk with dinosaurs, you can experience new heights and without the expense take a peek at your next holiday destination, or have a saber dance battle. If you can dream it, with the VIVE it can probably happen.     


Still not sure what Virtual reality, check out the infamous plank challenge.

Why are we doing this?

The concept of vT came about when I was trying to find ways to socialise with my gamer other half, I discovered a medium we could both operate without having to spend weeks learning it. This developed into a way to socialise with people and experience new heights together or alone, the ultimate icebreaker.

What are we doing?  

We are starting off as a mobile unit and will go to corporate parties, events & private functions. We also have our own events where we allow people to experience different simulations, we’ve been to the Vegan Festival, Aberdeen Soup, the Turriff and Keith shows.

Where do we want to go?  

In the future we’ll open up our own venue, where we’ll incorporate different concepts to make the environment welcoming for all types of people, so they feel comfortable to experience what vT has to offer.

Why do we need you?

In order to grow, we need to invest in more equipment & licenses. We’d like to start doing more community-based events, to do our part in impacting local lives. Starting your own business from the ground up is difficult and we need your help to make this dream come true.  

For every £100 we raise, we will donate an hour of a basic virtualrealiTEAs package for a community event, either a charity or a local project happening nearby* potentially adding up to 50 hours of free community events, giving us the opportunity to give people a chance to do something. 

Supporting us will be a massive help to our business and we appreciate you taking your time to read this. We have taster events dates & times on our website, they will be in Aberdeen throughout September so come along and find out what we are about!


*You will have the opportunity to suggest a community event at the end of the campaign. There is a potential to do between  up to 10 (each lasting up to 5hours)
