A new virtual reality waterslide has opened at Galaxy Erding in Germany, bringing virtual reality to theme park rides in a slightly different way. Riders are equipped with a waterproof headset that can be completely submerged in water to a few metres and is powered by an integrated Samsung Galaxy S8 that runs custom software for the VR experiences. Check out the trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the world’s first virtual reality waterslide which is going to create its own very unique kind of motion sickness.
“Ballast — the company behind VRSlide — is viewing this as the first step toward a larger kind of aquatic VR setup, one that would see full, impressive tanks that users could swim in while in virtual reality. It sounds far more intriguing than simply strapping a headset onto a water slide, but unfortunately that system isn’t quite ready for commercial roll out just yet.” explains the Verge.
