If everything goes according to VRcade’s plans, very soon gamers will be able to walk into retail locations around the country, lay down some cash, strap on special lightweight headgear, and enter a virtual world teeming with aliens, zombies or – if you’re a 49ers fan – legions of Richard Shermans determined to knock down your Super Bowl dreams.

That’s just one part of VRcade’s entrepreneurial strategy. The Seattle-based startup, which so far has been providing its own funding, imagines its full-motion virtual reality technology platform also being used as the foundation for next-level business and training.
