platform – A Virtual Reality Furniture


Platform is a furniture construction especially designed for the use in immersive Virtual Reality (VR) environments. Users wearing a head-mounted display (HMD) as used in many VR application scenarios are given a place/space for an almost unconstraint physical movement through the real and virtual world. A physical space of about 4 x 4 x 2.5 metersł is provided. Within this space there are no obstructions to the movement of the actor. The actor interacts on a circular floor with about 4 meters in diameter. The hmd and the tracker cables are lead through a rod-like construction. Integrated into the whole system is all the equipment needed for demonstrations and development.
