The Virtualizer offers absolute freedom of movement for every Virtual Reality application imaginable. Gaming. Simulation. Training. You name it!
Ever since Palmer Lucky sparked the VR revolution, a number of startup companies have successfully crowd funded their products and services. This Austrian startup, Cyberith, is a great example of huge Kickstarter success for virtual reality startups. Cyberith have developed the Cyberith Virtualizer that allows players to move freely inside the virtual world.
Every part of the Virtualizer is designed to combine maximum immersion with maximum stability. After three years of development and three generations of prototypes, here comes the perfect solution to a core problem of Virtual Reality.
What’s the use of an infinite virtual world if your body is still stuck in finite real space? Where other Virtual Reality locomotion solutions rely largely on open rooms to offer limited virtual space, the Virtualizer requires little room to offer unlimited virtual space.
Cyberith Virtualizer was designed to be compatible with any software that allows for controller or keyboard input, and is very easy to integrate into game engines. The Virtualizer can be easily stored and assembled in matter minutes. It runs on USB plug & play devices without the need for additional power supply, with integrated Bluetooth support to connect to HMDs like the Samsung Gear VR.
Use wired Head-Mounted Displays like the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive in 360°without getting tangled up.
360 degree tangle free rotation! Sitting Function thanks to customized belt. Integrated sensors detect orientation of your upper body. Weight of the ring compensated through a special balance system.
LOW-FRICTION BASE PLATE
The Cyberith Virtualizer has a low-friction base surface and high precision sensors that enable players to sit, walk, run, and interact with the virtual world in every direction. The central ring allows for vertical movements such as crouching and jumping, as well as 360-degree axial rotation provides an immersive virtual reality experience.
Made out of custom materials the base plate features the perfect friction coefficient for a natural walking gait. Built-in optical sensors detect each and every step of your movement, direction, and speed.
Cyberith Virtualizer: Unique 3 Point Decoupling System
1 ) The Head Mounted Display provides the viewing direction of the player
2 ) Controllers with integrated sensors allow you to aim wherever you want
3 ) Sensors in the ring construction and the base-plate track your movement direction
The sensors in the ring construction of the Cyberith Virtualizer stands out as the only locomotion device to offer Decoupling. Other devices rely on the data provided by the Head Mounted Display to decide your walking direction. It's time for all gamers to step inside the game without being restrained!
