Chris Hall loves to entertain people, and he loves gaming. He thinks tech is cool and he wanted to start a business that would be completely different. As the founder of Manitoba’s first VR entertainment company (and Canada’s third), he hit the mark. Chris’ first company, Portal VR, was an instant hit in Winnipeg, with about 20 virtual reality games to choose from. Customers could battle zombies, train to be a space pirate or design their dream vacation. This wasn’t just gaming, this was full-on immersion! But in 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit it became obvious that a business model where customers use headsets that go right on their faces was going to have a serious downside. The business closed, and while Chris was home running Daddy Daycare, he spent some time deciding what would be next.
In his research, Chris discovered a fully programmable robot with omnidirectional movement and multiple battle modes. It’s a highly versatile, maneuverable robot that makes playing fun, challenging and exciting. Pair them up with a system that enables them to operate remotely at fast speeds and with low reaction times and you’ve got something amazing. So Portal VR was renamed Portal Bots and robot wars suddenly got real!
