Just when I said nothing interesting was happening it seems lots of things are spawning !
From NewLaunches :
University of Tsukuba Japan has developed a dome shaped virtual reality walking system for patients patients suffering from a stroke etc. The VR treadmill can accommodate a 80kg person for a walking speed 1m/sec with strides of 80 cms. The dome has a viewing angle of 270 degrees horizontally and a 60 degrees vertically. The system is not fully developed and is very expensive for hospitals to install.
I’m not sure why a simple treadmill is not enough.
And is this curved screen cheaper and/or more suitable (including development of hard&soft) than a Sensics HMD or a Crescent HMD or a Fakespace Wide5 HMD (of which I haven’t talked yet but it really rocks!) ?
There must be good reasons, please tell me =)
