Digital technology is constantly improving, bringing us high-tech graphics and virtual experiences that are ever closer to the real thing.
A lot of us have recently found ourselves confined to our homes, unable to enjoy a day on the golf course or the in-person experience of a movie cinema. Since we are having to use our online movie platforms more than ever, we might as well try to make it feel like a trip to the movie theater.
Designing and installing an at-home media room can not only simulate an actual movie theater, it can also be used as a game room where you can install a golf-simulator.
Our clients in University Park, TX have found that a golf simulator can provide not just an afternoon on the links, but also be part of an all-immersive entertainment center where they can enjoy a wide range of games and movies with family and friends.
If you design your entertainment space to only watch movies in, with rows of seats bolted to the floor and sconced lighting, you might be missing out on a wide range of other activities the room might be used for.
A more casual design with adjustable seating and an AV installation that can accommodate a variety of media sources can serve as a game room as well as a movie theater.
Instead of installing a screen as a permanent fixture inside the panels of your wall, you can now install overhead projectors and retractable movie screens, with 4K Ultra HD resolution, that can allow for other uses of the same space.
You could also design your media room so that you could place a wet bar or refrigerator in the back to entertain friends who might want to come over on the weekend to watch the big game.
Not only do simulators offer you the chance to improve your golf game without having to schedule a tee time, but they also come with several other types of virtual sports and games that your friends and family can take part in.
Golf simulators, using advanced software and high-tech imagery, put you on the golf course and allow you to practice your putting, your chipping, and your drives. The better golf simulators, like Trackman and Full Swing, can also analyze your swing, developing your golf game even further. You’ll also be able to choose different courses to play like Pebble Beach or Augusta and compete in tournaments.
But with this same technology, you can also access other virtual gaming experiences that everyone, including children, can enjoy. Some of the more popular options include baseball, basketball, soccer, and hockey.
If your kids’ team sports leagues are currently sidelined due to the pandemic, these interactive options are great for helping them to improve hand-eye coordination, as well as providing them with an activity that doesn’t involve sitting in front of a computer or gaming console.
To see how we can design a media room that includes a golf-simulator, and test it out for yourself, give our team of designers a call at (972) 200-7087 to schedule an appointment or contact us here. We look forward to hearing from you.
