“Virtual reality offers great opportunities if you know how to use the technology correctly,” explained Simon Lajboschitz, the founder of Khora.

“You can send schoolchildren under the sea to study whales, midwifery students into a complicated birth or architects into the buildings they are designing.”

For 100 kroner, customers can buy VR glasses that connect to smartphones.

At the store, Khora offers a selection of experiences such as ‘Walk into a Van Gogh picture’, ‘Visit Mars’ and ‘Shoot Zombies’.

Khora also provides space for school visits, where students can learn about virtual reality.

The store is located at Høkerboderne 8 and is open from 10 am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, and from 10 am to 2pm on Saturdays.
