‘Shoppers’ will be able to drop by the store, called Khora, and try a number of virtual experiences such as ‘visiting Mars’ and ‘entering a Van Gogh painting’ for 199 kroner (around £20/US$30) per 30 minutes.

Khora will also offer spaces for virtual reality start-ups and visiting school groups. Read more: thelocal.dk
