With the opportunity for 360 degrees of exploration, it may seem strange to design around a fixed position, but Google’s design guidelines for Cardboard recommend a seated experience. For this reason, there have been several big VR chair startups popping up recently, such as ROTO and VRGO, that are trying to tackle the problem of moving through space while sitting down.

However, this project steps away from that trend and delivers a product that focuses on impacting our senses with built-in components that recreate the scents, sounds, and movements of real life environments.

A truly multi-sensory, immersive, virtual reality experience.
