Many attempts have been made, but to date, the successes have been minimal. C1s and C3s provide visual immersion, C6s (Caves) provide spatial immersion, but treadmills and sliding tiles restrict movement direction or speed.
The sphere works by rotating against the six wheels at its base. Each is pressure and movement sensitive, picking up the slightest movement from inside and correctly interpreting the direction and force.
The signals are transmitted immediately to the virtual environment, relayed back to the user via a HMD unit that covers their eyes.
As the user is moving physically the same way as their actions are reported virtually, there is no conflict with the inner ear, and simulator sickness is drastically reduced.
