Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, September 9, 2002 - StrayLight Corp. has developed and delivered a customized Virtual Reality game for VISA and Bancredito, which headlined a large CyberFair in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. StrayLight's interactive real-time Virtual Reality game was the headlining attraction for this Caribbean event, which included over 100 booths in a multi-tented outdoor venue, running for 4 days in early August. Promoting consumer electronics and consumer financing by Bancredito and VISA, StrayLight's VR experience challenged people of all ages to beat the clock and virtually collect computers, keyboards, printers and monitors to gain the coveted peso-points.
StrayLight's 90 second Virtual Reality game, "Ciberferia" ran non-stop for over 14 hours a day, with long lines of excited players.
