Virtual motion headset

— 12:12 AM on January 28, 2000

Games have come pretty far in the graphic and audio aspects, but what about motion? Well, until now, the best you could do is buy a goofy chair with a subwoofer built into it or go for a hydralic cockpit setup, which is far out reach for most people's budgets and is best suited for flight simulators. The BBC is reporting a company called Virtual Motion has developed a low cost headset technology that can stimulate your body's inner ear balance system with electrical impulses to trick it into sensing motion. In the LAN party of the not-to-distant future, you could really put the smack down on your friends.

Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
