Virtual Reality Transporter
Masters of Motion
While VR technology mimics the immersive visuals of the real world, Pulseworks motion and effects technology confirms what wearers are seeing by providing input to their other senses. Dynamic motion provides important cues to the brain that they are really traveling, and stunning surround-sound audio and other effects heighten feelings of realism. The effect of the VR Transporter is so powerful that many guests will try to reach out and touch objects as they pass by.
