The Transport Systems Catapult, one of seven technology innovation centers established by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, has opened a “Visualisation Laboratory” in the town of Milton Keynes where virtual reality technology will be used to help generate innovation and overcome problems in the UK’s transport network.
The laboratory is built around the Omnifinity Omnideck6, a 6 meter (20 foot) wide omnidirectional treadmill paired with an Oculus Rift DK2 virtual reality headset that allows users to walk in any direction.
Businesses can rent the facility for £500 per day, which includes technicians to configure and operate the floor in addition to assistance with integrating software and hardware and help with general trouble shooting.
Learn more about the project in the presentation below.
