How to make the user experience of virtual reality more vibrant and authentic? Eight360 startup representatives know the answer to this question.
The Nova platform from the Eight360 startup was supposed to be introduced to the public a couple of months ago, but the coronavirus pandemic recalibrated the company's actions. However, the quarantine can even help the project, because, since people can’t leave their houses, they are becoming more and more interested in new technologies, including virtual reality.
Nova is a two-meter and 500-kilogram sphere on a solid reliable support. Inside the device is a wheel that can rotate the simulator 360 degrees along all axes. All this is necessary for the physical movement of the technology user in space.
Inside the sphere is a powerful computer, fixtures for a chair, a VR headset, and other devices. The device is to be used to train pilots, military and rescue workers — people who need to learn to operate heavy machinery. The device synchronizes with different models of VR headsets, but it is not intended for games. The manufacturer plans to lease simulators at a price of $150,000 per year.
