Roto Solves Common VR Gaming Challenges!
While stand-up VR can be great fun, most people sit down to play games. This presents some unique challenges.
If you’re sitting stationary, but the digital world spins around (as would be the case using joysticks to turn and move around in a non-mobile gaming chair), motion sickness can occur, ruining your fun and your game. For VR headsets connected to a PC via a cable, you can also have problems turning, due to your cables getting tangled and blocking any movement.
Roto solves both issues with our integrated cable magazines, which allow you to always turn around freely. No more motion sickness, without breaking the VR illusion and all while keeping your cables tidy!
VR headsets track the direction you’re looking, but not the direction you’re facing. For stand-up VR this is ok, because developers can get a read from the hand controllers and make a best guess as to which way you’ve turned. It works well enough.
For a seated VR user, this is a much bigger problem. A developer can’t reliably tell whether you’ve turned left, or just looked left. To avoid complications with game controls, most developers avoid the problem altogether.
The term given to solving the disconnect between ‘looking’ and ‘facing’ is called ‘decoupled locomotion’ and is the key to creating realistic avatars and natural movement in VR. The Roto VR chair tracks your facing direction in real time and sends back the data to developers as an ‘input’.
Thanks to Roto’s integrated motor, developers can use the facing direction as an ‘output’, so they can also rotate us around dynamically, giving them the freedom to create full 360-degree experiences without worrying if anything important will be missed.
You really feel like you’re there!
All these features are integrated into every Roto Gaming Chair to give you a fully immersive VR gaming experience.
Experience VR gaming like never before with the fully interactive VR chair from Roto VR!
With the integrated Touch Pedals, you can walk in first-person games while comfortably seated. The internal tracking sensors accurately measure the direction your chair is facing, giving you a gaming experience with distinct, uncanny realism. Roto VR provides this step-tracking data as both an input and output for developers to use, helping games industry creatives dream up compelling new experiences.
The responsive Double Rumble engine, which can be driven by in-game audio, allows you to feel engine throttle, gear shifts, turbulence, landing gear, and much more, bringing you deeper into a highly immersive and realistic experience. Powerful motors at the back and underside of the chair heighten the sense of presence and immersion.
Aside from these thrillingly innovative features, the Roto VR chair also acts as a great ergonomic gaming chair in its own right, and is sure to keep you comfortable through long gaming sessions full of effortless 360 exploration. With the convenient cable magazines, you’ll be able to ensure reliable HDMI and USB connections between your headset and PC, without having to worry about getting tangled in wires when you move your body.
