A new step for Virtual Reality

It always has intrigued me how we could simulate the physical process of walking when immersing ourselves into a Virtual Reality system. The answer has arrived: VirtuSphere.

The VirtuSphere platform consists of a large hollow sphere that sits on top of a base

and allows the sphere to rotate 360 degrees. Wearing a wireless, head-mounted

display, users can step inside the sphere to fully interact in immersive virtual

environments. The VirtuSphere enables 6 degrees of freedom � one can move in any

direction; walk, jump, roll, crawl, run over virtually unlimited distances without

encountering real-world physical obstacles.

Amazing! I would love to play in one of these. Now, we have a new question to answer: What if I want to seat on a couch in the virtual world? Even more: What if… I want to eat food in the virtual world? Any answers? Suggestions?
