Do you want to free up your hands from controllers when engrossed in Virtual Reality? Motion Sensor Seats are the perfect way to enjoy the action without even getting up.
Motion Sensor Seats have proved useful in the healthcare sector - whether that be for diagnosis purposes or care - and they have now found their way into the world of Virtual Reality.
Some chairs are developed to heighten the experience of being within a virtual world simply by combining different existing elements - such as hand and feet controllers - while other options out there go as far as to simulate different movement and objects.
Many high-tech seats come with headsets built into their frames as well as feet controllers and/or hand controllers, and others are simply compatible with existing extras already on the market.
One of the primary aims of Motion Sensor Seats is to give VR users a greater sense of freedom when exploring their virtual surroundings with less energy. With a VR headset and controllers, you're always focused on what's directly in front of you and cannot see beyond your peripherals unless you move your body - which can become tiring after prolonged use.
Motion Sensor Seating uses gyroscopic movement to allow for freedom in 360 degrees, without the user having to physically exert themselves.
It combines a number of different Virtual Reality accessories and features - headsets, hand and feet controllers, motion sensor suits and haptic feedback capabilities - into one neat and sleek package.
There are a number of Motion Sensor Seats available both at attractions across the world, and for your own home.
These high-tech seats offer a world of freedom couple with comfort, and here we have devised a list of the top options available to the public:
Our partners at ITR offer the Formula Tub for hire with various Virtual Reality headset options.
In this immersive racing experience the user sits in a car with a VR headset on, completely transported into the world of F1 racing.
Not only will the audience see all of the surroundings, they will feel like they are actually on the track whilst the features of the tub move around and vibrate according to the activity on the screen.
The Formula Tub is sleek, compatible with a number of different headsets, and when you hire with ITR you are in the hands of highly-skilled technicians at all times.
Dubbed the ultimate seated VR experience designed for all HMDs - the Roto VR is a cut above the standard Motion Sensor Seat.
The headset plugs into a port at the bottom of the base, removing the issue of turning 360 degrees in VR and getting tangled in cables.
The MMOne is a Motion Sensor Seat that looks as if it was plucked straight out of a sci-fi film.
MMOne is a new simulator that includes a fixed platform with adjustable legs, the base, attached sports seats, and VR glasses or screen. The control system includes a joystick or interactive wheel.
The unique software system can be used for various applications - and impressively has the ability to move the user 360 degrees at ANY angle - even upside down!
Onirix VR offer a variety of customised seats for a number of virtual reality experiences.
Used in cinemas and events alike - Onirix allow your audience to enjoy VR properly on comfortable, cable-free seats compatible with most VR headsets.
They can offer plush arm chairs with built-in headsets as well as extras such as live monitoring and premium support when in use.
Motion Sensor Seats are more than just a sleek-looking novelty - they offer practical solutions to a number of problems with Virtual Reality.
Motion sickness and nausea is something many HMD users complain about, which Motion Sensor Seats are designed to lessen.
Extended use of headsets and the movement required to operate them can leave users exhausted, something else that Motion Sensor Seats aim to tackle by not requiring you to move out of a chair - while still being able to explore.
Motion Sensor Seats also require a lot less space than traditional Virtual Reality set ups - making them perfect for busy and bustling events.
