Virtusphere – a good improvement in VR technology

stinger

One of the many things that was a downside to player involvement in VR gaming was the fact that other applications generally kept the player in one spot and you would have to use a control of some sort to move around – which is not realistic. One company has found a way to get around that with their Virtusphere technology, which as they describe it acts as a hamster ball for humans but also behaves as a controller for players to walk around in any direction while they wear a VR headset. It’s a pretty cool jump in what can be done with VR although if you had something like this on a location you would probably have to make sure someone is there to make sure that the player gets in and out OK.
