Virtual reality (VR) has become a familiar technology, but now you can have a novel VR experience that gives the illusion that you are in an unlimited vertical space.

According to ConfigReality, their research on the human brain space recognition systems led them to develop an algorithm that creates the illusion of walking in an unlimited space by subtle perception deviation as users walk around a small room.

“It is impossible for a person to walk in a straight line without eyesight and hearing. Now we replace the eyesight and hearing with VR to cheat your position sense so that you will feel like you’re wandering in a large virtual world while actually walking around in a 50-square-meter physical space,” ConfigReality explained in a statement. To avoid long queues of users wishing to try this VR work, the exhibitor suggests visitors sign up in advance by scanning the QR code below.

The exhibition not only aims to bring the most advanced mixed reality experience to visitors but also tries to discuss whether the space experience brought by sensory simulation and wearable technology will lead us to a better human-oriented future.

The organizers also aim to explore the potential of mixed reality, or hybrid reality, the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time.
