- Virtual reality and amusement park: the right equation
One of the problems with virtual reality is that immersion can be ruined when the body does not feel the sensations visualized by its brain with a virtual reality headset. If the experience lived in virtual reality includes movements, especially important ones and accelerations and the user does not feel them, the brain tells itself that there is a scam somewhere and comes out of the VR immersion in which it was immersed. To overcome this problem, and to offer real thrills to visitors to Everland amusement park, Samsung has developed a particularly impressive robotic arm.
VR robot: an articulated arm for powerful sensations in VR
Robot VR is a huge robotic arm developed by Samsung with a local start-up and this one is particularly impressive. About ten users can climb aboard the arm which rises to 6 meters in height in this huge hangar. Different movements, in line with the virtual reality experience offered in VR headsets, will shake users.
Thrills guaranteed since Many loops are carried out by the articulated arm of Robot VR during the experience which lasts about 3 minutes. What to put users upside down. The virtual reality experience offered in Samsung Gear VR headsets simulates a robot in the middle of a fight. A very successful experience which, according to the park managers, will soon allow users to control the robot's movements for an experience as interactive as it is rich in sensations.. Robot VR should open soon according to the South Korean news agency Yonhap, which published the information. No details were given on a possible appearance of Robot VR in Europe or during a tour as the Korean manufacturer regularly does..
Virtual reality and amusement park: the right equation
Samsung's Everland isn't the first theme park to combine rides and virtual reality. Different parks have included a roller coaster virtual reality program. A welcome blend that allows users to live a particularly intense experience in virtual reality. The VR content projected in the headset is punctuated by the movements of the roller coaster, the sensations are truly powerful.
Articulated arms for virtual reality are not new either. MMone, for example is an armchair placed on an articulated arm for extreme simulations which can rotate in all directions and also offer extremely strong sensations. Unlike Robot VR, MMone is designed for one person and is completely interactive since it reproduces the movements of the video game played by the user.
