A New Zealand tech startup Eight360 has created a motion simulator that looks like something out of Jurassic World.Nova is an “untethered VR motion simulator,” making virtual reality games and training programs feel more real by rotating in any direction.
The sphere, which has been compared to a “human-sized hamster ball,” is 5.9 feet in diameter, needing just a 6.5 square foot area. The whole thing weighs about 1,100 lbs, and can be transported on a pallet or forklift.
NOVA, is a unique untethered VR motion simulator suitable for training, amusement and educational uses. It allows users to experience immersive content with full unlimited rotation in all axes.
This is the next big step in simulators – our technology can accurately translate the sensations of a virtual vehicle to the real world, so you’ll believe you’re really there.NOVA already integrates with a host of PC based games and simulators, including DCS:World, X-Plane and NoLimits2 – Roller Coaster simulator.//eight360
