Koliseum Soccer VR merges the physical actions of Table Soccer - Foosball with the unique sensations of Virtual Reality. A complete universe surrounds the stadium, where an enthusiastic crowd encourages players that come alive, run, dribble and perform sensational acrobatics.

Kynoa's Mission: Sociable and friendly VR
Virtual Reality is a paradoxical experience: never before has a media pushed immersion into alternative fantasy worlds so far, but never have there been such risks of driving players into social isolation.
Kynoa's mission is to overcome this shortcoming by creating extraordinary Virtual Reality (VR) content. Blurring the boundaries between the real and the virtual, while privileging the experiences that create real human interaction with social team communications and personal links.
Kynoa is a cross-platform content producer based in Geneva (Switzerland). Our team includes creators and developers whose work in Virtual Reality has earned awards at Los Angeles’ SIGGRAPH 2015, the VR Hollywood Summit in 2016 and a recent grant from Epic Games, for “outstanding work”. We develop attractions based on extremely popular arcade games, multiplying the pleasure of players to compete against each other, and collaborating and interacting as physical teams around common and motivating subjects.
Founded in 2017, Kynoa currently employs 14 professionals - creative directors, visual artists, animators, and developers. Kynoa delivers completely original virtual reality environments and characters, along with animations, visual effects, and dedicated user interfaces.

FMX is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and Arts and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing of the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg, the City of Stuttgart and MFG Baden-Wuerttemberg, taking place in cooperation with the VES Visual Effects Society and ACM SIGGRAPH, supported by the Animation Media Cluster Region Stuttgart (AMCRS), Autodesk, Backstage, Epic Games/Unreal Engine, Foundry, Mackevision and ScanlineVFX.
