The Transport Systems Catapult, one of seven technology innovation centers established by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, has opened aÂ â€œVisualisation Laboratoryâ€ in the town of Milton KeynesÂ where virtual reality technology will be used to help generate innovation and overcome problems in the UKâ€™s transport network.
The laboratory is built around the Omnifinity Omnideck6,Â a 6 meter (20 foot) wide omnidirectional treadmill paired withÂ an Oculus Rift DK2 virtual realityÂ headset that allows users to walk in any direction.
Businesses can rent the facility forÂ Â£500Â perÂ day, which includes technicians to configure and operate the floorÂ in addition to assistance withÂ integrating software and hardware and help with general trouble shooting.
