VR motion simulator
“Regarding virtual reality, a realistic motion system is the key to immersive gaming. However, despite being viewed from many different perspectives, all traditional VR motion technologies have failed to provide an optimal solution that can combine a high level of immersion with convenience and comfort.”
“Now it’s time for VR motion technology to catch up and engage your lower body. SitWalk is designed for gaming and to address the problem of motion sickness, which provides a fully immersive experience for your favorite games. With interactive foot control pedals that free your hands from controlling body direction and allow you to walk on your feet while sitting, SitWalk is the final step in creating a complete VR system that controls vision with your head, manual interaction with your hands, and motion with your feet. This effectively improves immersion, reduces motion sickness and space limitations, and maximizes your VR experience.”
