We're excited by the surge in virtual reality technology. The promise of immersive presence is compelling but is let down when in reality you are flying a plane in an arm chair. To really be there, virtual reality needs a sense of motion,and that's what we do!
At Eight360 we design and build inventive and immersive simulators to extend virtual reality worlds with the sensation of genuine motion.
nvrt Motion Platform
Our flagship product nVRt is an untethered motion platform for video games, virtual reality (VR), vehicle simulators and more. It allows users to experience full unlimited rotation in all axes, as well as acceleration and gravitational effects.
This is the next big step in simulators – our technology can accurately translate the sensations of a virtual vehicle to the real world, so you’ll believe you’re really there.
This platform already integrates with a host of PC based games and simulators, including Digital Combat Simulator World, X-Plane, NoLimits2 – Roller Coaster Simulation and our custom VR Military Driving Simulator.
VR military driving simulator
This custom experience enables users to practice driving different large vehicles in a safe, sandbox environment, and also allows customisation of mass distribution to simulate e.g. unladen vs. fully loaded handling behaviour.
The simulator allows users to become accustomed to how vehicles with different configurations cope with manoeuvring over broken terrain, steep inclines and other potentially dangerous situations.
This physical sense of the vehicles’ “safe” range of motion, and how to handle them in these conditions, can prevent future real-life accidents.
