VR goes mobile

Together with

The Future. Honda and Disney are working on very different approaches to the VR mobile experience… literally. Whichever one takes off, its adoption could solve the reason why VR hasn’t taken off yet.

Rollin’ reality
If you thought the VR capabilities of the Apple Vision Pro were cool now, wait until you’re on the move.

  • Honda announced an extended reality system that combines a VR headset with its Uni-One mobility device (it’s like a hi-tech wheelchair) that allows people to control their experiences using their bodies as a joystick.
  • Disney Imagineer Lanny Smoot invented an “omnidirectional HoloTile Floor” that moves as the user moves, creating the illusion that they’re walking. He’s pushing Disney to license the technology to other companies.

Both inventions are being touted as revolutionary technologies for theme park attractions, walk-through activations, and your classic strip-mall VR arcade.

And, hey, these will be much safer than trying to use your headset while driving.
