Walking VR

Immersive Wide Area Walking System



Use Vizard Virtual Reality Software Toolkit to build a walkable virtual environment without needing any computer programming background. Walking VR systems can be set up in any space, from a massive gymnasium to a tiny corner of a research lab. And your virtual environment can be as large or small as you need it to be; let us deal with logistics.
The cunning of walking VR goes beyond the head-mounted display. Receive spatially-accurate aural stimuli with our 3D sound system. Allow haptic feedback devices, like a force feedback stylus or floorshakers, to interface with your virtual environment. Using our PPT motion-tracking camera system, you can move around however you want in as large a space as you’d like and still be tracked accurately, with incredibly low-latency. Effectively integrating hardware with content is key to generating complete telepresence.
Manipulate CAD models, interact with life-like avatars, adjust texture and aesthetic design, rearrange, disassemble, add, remove, and automate objects of any size – this is all easily done, real-time, using WorldViz VR technology. Simply don an interactive VR device, like a dataglove or WorldViz’s Wand 2013, and begin interacting immediately.

What can I do with Walking Virtual Reality?

WorldViz takes the most advanced Virtual Reality (VR) hardware and expertly integrates it into highly immersive turnkey “walking VR” systems. What does that mean for you? We develop systems that measure your bodily movements with millimeter precision, at imperceptible latency levels, to provide seamless walk-about VR for your own industry-specific application. Walking VR works especially well for:

  • Architectural walk-throughs
  • Industrial training and prototyping
  • Military and disaster prevention training
  • Human behavioral research
