Can VR be Used While Riding in a Vehicle?
In just this decade alone, we have seen some incredible advancements in technology in the world, and in our cars. One of the biggest trends recently has been virtual reality, as headsets today finally offer a one of a kind and immersive experience. With many vehicles also implementing new technologies to keep passengers other than the driver occupied, can VR be used while riding in a vehicle?
Recently at the Startup Autobahn Expo Day in Stuttgart, Germany, Porsche showed off their newest project working with all-new VR technology. This ‘holoride’ technology is used to help give passengers the chance to use virtual reality. This is done by pairing the VR headset with sensors in the vehicle that are adapted to the car’s movements in real time.
How Does Porsche Holoride Work?
For example, if the driver is taking a turn around a curve, the virtual space that the VR user is currently using for entertainment will also change direction to follow the car’s movements. This helps the virtual reality experience stay immersive as well as reduce motion sickness, a symptom that some VR users experience.
However, this is more than just simply taking a virtual reality headset on the road with you. The new holoride software was designed specifically for use in vehicles. Other manufacturers and companies will also be able to benefit from the company’s open platform approach to the new technology.
