Cyberith’s Virtualizer, a full body motion tracking platform, is preparing to head out on a brief tour this month, the company has announced. The kit, which places users on a platform and then tracks everything from steps to crouching, will be appearing at the MIPIM in France and the International Conference on Presence (ISPR) in Austria this month. The tour will take place while work on a third iteration of the Virtualizer is continued in the run up to a crowdfunding campaign.The MIPIM is running in Cannes, France on 11th to 12th March 2014. Here the company hopes to ‘show the Virtualizer’s true potential for application in the real estate sector and architecture in general,’ proving that the technology isn’t just for use with videogames. Meanwhile the ISPR conference will run from 17th to 19th March, where the Virtualizer’s ability to trick users into thinking they are in another space will be showcased.
The Cyberith Virtualizer has made a name for itself online thanks to a range of video demonstrations that show it working with big budget videogames like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Grand Theft Auto IV. It’s not yet known when the consumer version and crowdfunding campaign will be detailed. VRFocus will continue to track the platform’s development and report back with the latest.
