Walking VR

Immersive Wide Area Walking System

What is it?

Literally walk through virtual environments in full scale and experience a stunning sense of immersion. Simply don a stereoscopic head-mounted display and you’re free to walk and explore naturally. An automatic motion tracking system synchronizes movement in the real world with movement in the virtual world creating the Holodeck illusion. Interact with virtual objects by using the Wand 2013 or by wearing a data glove.
