“Now people can have the opportunity to access and experience the mechanical but high-tech and high-security versions of amusement park amusement devices, which we can call real roller coasters, much more easily. We rode the roller coaster here with Mr. Mustafa We put on our virtual reality goggles, we had an interesting experience, we tried together a version that looks like the Far East, where you can also ride challenges that will further excite children and young people. You feel yourself spinning and somersaulting as you fly through the sky. Of course, you only attempt this through glasses, with the support of mechanical systems.
Stating that this is a government that wants to develop Turkey with value-added production, Varank pointed out that with the development of R&D centers and technoparks, engineers and technical personnel have started to develop and to produce much more value-added products.

“Today we have seen innovative products developed by DOF Robotics in the entertainment industry. Major companies that have licensing rights in the entertainment and animation industry in the world allow such a company to use their licenses and allow the sale of entertainment equipment all over the world.Therefore we can say that we have come to a point.The production in Turkey in this area.We also have different companies that do serious production in entertainment industry, water world or roller coaster world which we call theme parks.DOF Robotics has developed such capability by itself and get a global market share, which we always say is the best value-added production one of the examples.”

If our companies are going to make large investments, our investment incentive system comes in. Contractors do this work themselves, but our state’s contribution to them is undeniable.” This company has done about 5 projects with TÜBİTAK. The first development of some of the products here was through TÜBİTAK projects. Of course, the fact that these opportunities offered by the state trigger the real sector shows how correct our work is.”
Noting that DOF Robotics is one of the top 3 companies in the world in this field, Varank said, “But we want to see them first. It’s not enough, we want to see a lot more companies doing the same job. Which combines virtual reality and mechanics in the world of entertainment. When they say there is a country, we want Turkey to come to mind first. I hope we will achieve this through our businesses. made his assessment.
