Media Vehicle simulates a cocoon

by gary, posted October 26, 2009 – 9:07 AM

This cool Media Vehicle is capable of nesting you safely into its safe confines that make it look like a cocoon. Once you´re sealed inside it, you can monitor everything that´s happening outside with the help of a large spherical screen. This screen displays grabs from a camera that is located outside it. The four wheels provide stability and fluidity of motion.

The Media Vehicle is described as a `personal virtual reality cocoon´. It was developed at the Iwata- Yano Laboratory at Tsukuba University.
