Experience a new sensation. The sensation of becoming someone else.

The VR generation to surpass previous ones: VR2.0. Next generation technology brings the cyberspace to life. Cybernetically hack into the universe of "Ghost in the Shell" and experience new sensations.



"Ghost in the Shell" is not SF anymore.
Ghost in the Shell, a parrallel world where cyberized humans and androids carrying their own will (their own ghost) coexist.

This world is getting closer and closer to becoming reality.

The globalization of internet and smartphones, the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics, the production of 3D-printed prosthetics, the evolutions of researches on synthetical skin, kidneys and DNA...

What used to be seen as science fiction is now possible thanks to current technological advances. We can say our world is headed towards an "age of cyberpunk".

"Cyberpunk" is a SF genre set in near future where human bodies and minds are digitally and biologically enhanced, and communications take place on a large-scale network.

Acclaimed representant of the genre, "Ghost in the Shell" carries both positive and alarming messages for our society.

For instance, the cyberization of the brain and of the body "makes unclear the line between humans and "what is not human"", disrupts human logic and beliefs, and has been stirring debates all over the world.

"What is human existence?"
"What is a soul?"
"How will technology change humanity?"

Nobumichi Asai


The Advent of Virtual Reality 2.0
Virtual Reality is an "illusion of reality" created with computer graphics and sound effects.

The concept, first designed by the American scientist Ivan Sutherland in 1968, has become a reality more than 40 years later.

Many forms of VR technology have been announced this year, and VR devices are rapidly getting more accessible and popular. This is undoubtedly the start of a VR2.0 era.

Using the latest kinds of "VR dome" and "VR device" notably, this project recreates an imaginary world more realistically than any VR before, directly into your "cyberbrain".

With this advanced VR technology, we take up the challenge of providing our users with a new experience, that of diving into a world where VR is abundant, the world of "Ghost in the Shell".

This virtual universe will captivate you with unique sensations.

Let your eyes and brain experience a new form of Virtual Reality: VR2.0.


A World of Purity: HOLY GROUND
"To end the war and protect my wife, I must delete you all…"

Japan, 2025. Technology has been advancing more and more rapidly.

"Brain cyberization" that makes possible direct connections to information networks via the brain, the technology of "prosthetic bodies" that allows humans to change their body parts into cybernetical ones; in this world where such scientific advances have become common, a bombing attack threat is sent to the Japanese government.
The target is an international meeting involving dignitaries from the Republic of Kuzan. The case is entrusted to the Ministry of Home Affairs' Public Security Section 9.

Section 9's leader, the full-cyborg Motoko Kusanagi, assembles her team and heads off to trap and eliminate the terrorist.
