VirtuSphere – Immersive Virtual Reality environment

One avenue of research in geospatial technologies and geovisualization is immersive Virtual Reality. One of the biggest issues is how to simulate moving through a real landscape. The VirtuSphere rotates as the user walks in any direction while wearing the head mounted display that delivers the virtual environment. I’m sure it’s not the only apparatus out there, but the fact that it’s portable and doesn’t require the extensive structure of a CAVE or other projection-based system is kinda cool
