TOPANGA, Calif. (KTLA) Virtual reality (VR) has been around for a while but it’s still a relatively new form of entertainment. While the equipment to create the experience at home is still expensive, you may be able to check out the experience at your local mall.
VR playgrounds are popping up at malls across America. Recently, NewsNation affiliate KTLA reporter Rich DeMuro checked out Sandbox VR at The Village in Topanga, California.
