This why i think full dive vr is way better than vision based vr because of how much hardware we need to make to actually make the experience "real" compared to the concept of full dive vr all the experience we go through is simulated straight to our brains Although full dive vr is going to be WAAAAY more complicated than todays vr but when we do make one its going to be one of the best invention of humankind

It's been two years but they still have not released that thing into production... I am dissappointed... not really but I would love for it to be finished by April, 2021.

Only reason this is okay is cuz you czn stay fit as a gamer and going for a walk after a solid month of gaming isn't a system shock 👌

@LegendLength I was thinking like if the skates with RC stunt car wheels you check RC stunt Car videos . And then these skates would pair with you machine.. But anyways you would figure it out.. best wishes... for team .
LegendLength 18 hours ago
I think skates are a good alternative solution. There's a similar one that's been out for a few years where you simply wear socks and your feet slide on the surface. Has some limitations though.

People be talkin' about Ready Player One but forgot about that movie's world setting. Yep, a true dystopia. Meanwhile, in SAO, just a world with a new video game to play.

why dont they just make a floor thats slippery then have supports around your body so that you dont fall

7:23 I recommend calibration of a head camera above the player and add a few more cameras on the bars . These sensors would need to calibrate speed, and directional movement such as micro gestures. Developing sensor pads on your treadmill could help with directional adjustments. Remember flow needs to follow the laws of physics. Weight , tension, gravity, friction. Anything that applies force will cost energy. So keeping each track relatively functioning evenly allows for better movement alongside using smaller parts for more delicate motions.

I had the awesome opportunity back in the early 90’s to work with the W Industries Virtuality machines. I was a floor manager at an entertainment complex call Exhilarama in Crestwood Missouri. I worked with the standup and sit down units. I can remember many a night after we closed, spending all night and into the next morning playing and exploring all of the in’s and outs of what the units could do! I really wish I could’ve stuck with it! Unfortunately it was way ahead of its time and many mistakes were made. I’m now in the trades and have been for the last 25 years. I bet my life would have turned out a lot differently if I would have decided to continue in that field.

Think of a mouse ball. Before they came lasers. What if the deck was a hundred or even a thousand of these? They would need controlled resistance. But then you could truly have a 360 movement. Vs just x and y.

Since the user is wearing a headset, can't they use EEG to map user brain signal to the treadmill?

It is a probability problem, the expected value of the possible moves the user can do. Hard stuff.

The “tread mill” also known as the “tread wheel” was first introduced in the height of the Roman Empire, around the late first century. When the Romans found they had a need to lift heavier weight, they incorporated the treadmill, replacing the winch in their cranes. The men would walk within the wheel itself and because the treadmill had a larger diameter, they were able to lift double the weight with half the crew. U.S purpose of the Treadmill. During the Victorian Era, British engineer William Cubitt invented the prison treadmill. Installed for hard labor, these treadmills were designed as a means to usefully employ convicts and use their power to be productive. The prisoner would simply work the wheel to produce power to grind corn and pump water, although some served no purpose at all other than punishment. I say jump roping is and always will be better than a treadmill, in the means of exercise but not for VR..👊👊😂😂

I'm an Engineering Freshman (noob). Correct me if I'm wrong, why can't they use PID here? Afaik, positional tracking is pretty much spot on in Oculus Motion Trackers. All you need to do is implement a 2D PID control.

They should make it maybe two or three times bigger so that over dampening or under dampening wouldn’t have to much negative effect and they could make they actual treadmill faster and more responsive

They could have the CPU determine velocity by putting a scale underneath which weighs you as part of a start and uses that to determine how much force your feet are imparting on the deck which would allow the CPU to adjust more smoothly with the player

I guess if the problem is intent it could potentially be solved with AI. Whatever game you are playing AI analyzes yours and other player’s movement based on context and makes a prediction. I have no idea how this things work though, but it’s what those who do that tell us that’s what AI is capable of doing.

They should use gait-analysis with cameras and ditch the central point approach... That way, they can have a shorter delay and more continuous activation.

This is not the way to go. Instead, use something like a giant touchpad, make it slippery (special socks could be enough), make sure you lock the player in place for example by sitting in sth. like a swing and then he walks and the touchpad just tracks where the feet connect. Thats it right?

Why does it need to account for your acceleration and movement, could it just be a platform that allows you to walk in any direction and the circle is use as a barrier to stop you from going to far, seems like extra unnecessary work

why nobody uses, non-eletric way, like you are inside of big hamster ball, that you move using own mussels, strait,left-right,all angles, just use machine motors to stoop ball when you want to stop

Passive treadmilling is superior to active treadmilling in positional sensing and integration into gaming.

I wonder if they can use brainwaves to feed an algorithm to "predict" what movement you are going to do in order to optimize the movement. Like when you think "slow down" (obviously not consciously, just the muscle memory type of signal) then it can already act to account for that. They would need to read live brain waves and process them in real time.

Question: if syncing with the floor and the human body is difficult, why dont they make the floor loose that the human body move the floor it self and have senser under that floor detect in which direction the floor is moving and have that display in VR so basically the user will physically move the floor and have the user station in the middle and only the legs will move the floor which in turn move the avatar

Couldn't you just make the treadmill work by using the power of your legs then translate that into the game? Surely this is just over complicating it. I was thinking something like how the old mouse's worked with those balls in.

This treadmill is just a drunkenness simulator. Way to much lag. The "Omni" made by Virtuix, has it's downsides too, but seems more usable.
