Ein interessantes Projekt des Max-Planck-Instituts für biologische Kybernetik wird am 17. – 18. April 2008 in einem Workshop präsentiert:

Walking is the most natural way for humans to navigate through their environment. To date, however, it is almost impossible to physically walk through Virtual Environments in an unconstrained way.

In the EU project “CyberWalk” we developed an omni-directional treadmill, which together with markerless tracking, optimized control and several perceptual tricks enables humans to walk through Virtual Worlds in a natural and unconstrained fashion (www.cyberwalk-project.org).
