Who would have ever thought that the day would come where eSports would be a thing.
But today, it’s big business. Teams have celebrity status, lucrative sponsorship deals, and huge cash winnings from league play.
Another competitive sport that’s taken off… quite literally… in recent years is drone racing.
The kicker there is that drone racing is incredibly expensive and hardware heavy.
But what if there was a way to incorporate the two. Well, vRotors is a company that has done just that.
vRotors is seeking to create a new eSports league where real drone racing occurs through a video game-style interface.
Imagine, you could be in the comfort of your own home and be controlling a drone that is racing to victory at a GrandPrix style race on the other side of the globe.
The Future of vRotors
In phase one of their roll-out, vRotors has already hosted 459 races. Up next for them is the development of full-fledged tournament play where they host multiple tournaments simultaneously around the world.
