VizMove virtual reality
Part #: VR-SEAT-BIO, VR-WALK-BIO, VR-STAND-BIO, VR-PROJ-BIO

These VR Systems combine VizMove Virtual Reality Systems with a biofeedback linking utility to tightly synchronize VR world events with real-time physiological response data from your existing MP150 Research System, allowing you to change the environment in real time, based on the participant’s responses. VizMove turnkey VR systems allow you to start running a high-res virtual reality lab from the moment you unpack the box. A great solution for starter VR labs that want to expand their stimulus delivery capabilities, VizMove Systems include everything you need to create and experience interactive virtual reality applications for a variety of protocols. Systems are offered to meet specific research needs and lab space for single or multiple users:

Seated VR | Compact & Precise: Computer, Vizard software, VR headset, Gamepad controller
Standing VR | Precision tracking: Computer, Vizard software, VR headset, 2 sensor PPT motion tracking with wand (up to 3m2)
Walking VR | Wide-area Motion Tracking: Computer, Vizard software, VR headset, 4 sensor PPT motion tracking with wand (up to 7m2)
Projection VR | Stereoscopic multi-user experience: Computer, Vizard software, two projectors & five 3D glasses, 3 sensor PPT motion tracking with wand

Combine VizMove VR Systems with BIOPAC physiological data recording and stimulus presentation options to record and analyze physiological, behavioral, and subjective response data in realistic, immersive environments that would be impossible or prohibitively expensive in the real world. Add auditory, olfactory, haptic, and electric stimulus for an incredible degree of realism.

BIOFEEDBACK LINK

With the Biofeedback linking protocol—a proprietary utility and AcqKnowledge software with a Network Data Transfer (NDT) license—events from the virtual or augmented world (AR) and physiological data are synchronized. NDT has the capability to send all of its channels over the network to other computers as well as the same computer. The data from AcqKnowledge—such as physiological recordings, digital markers, and calculation channels—can be used in real time by the VR System or other applications. The linking protocol allows you to use a feedback loop for greater control and automation of the VR world—change the VR world in real time, based on the subject’s responses.

COMPLETE VR SYSTEMS

VizMove VR Systems are complete VR hardware and software solutions with everything you need to create and experience virtual reality content. Choose the System that suits your lab space, participant population, mobility requirements, and budget.

All VizMove VR Systems include

  • High-performance rendering computer.
  • Vizard development platform: Vizard is the most powerful, innovative virtual reality development platform. It includes a set of powerful, scalable, and flexible tools for creating VR applications and provides everything you need to rapidly build and deploy a wide range of immersive, 3D experiences.
  • Additional environment presentation, navigation, and tracking components as detailed below.

VizMove Seated VR

VizMove Seated VR is ideal for users in design visualization and consumer research analysis in a typical lab setting where space may be limited—does not require any more space than a typical monitor-based stimulus presentation system but is much more immersive. Participants are typically seated and can look freely in all directions. This compact virtual reality system uses a VR headset and gamepad controller.

  • Visualize complex environments
  • Navigate large areas
  • Set up system quickly and easily in a small area

Core Features

  • Navigation: Navigate in virtual worlds using a gamepad controller.
  • Development Ready: Pre-configured system has everything you need to create sophisticated VR applications.
  • Scalable: Cost-effectively expands to meet all of your VR requirements. Add motion tracking, biofeedback devices, haptic devices, and more.

VizMove Standing VR

VizMove Standing VR is ideal for research in which precise 3D manipulation, measurement and motion tracking need to be combined with fully immersive virtual reality applications, and this setup fits in a small lab space. Particpants can move forward and sideways with improved realism—approach/avoid avatars or objects just as naturally as in the real world. Using the infrared cameras for tracking dramatically improves the quality of the tracking; participants will feel more comfortable and will be able to move around more freely while being tracked precisely, plus additional objects, such as an object the participant is holding, can also be tracked.

This VR System includes a HMD, navigation wand, and Precision Position Tracking (PPT) with  two sensors and tripods that allow for six degrees of freedom (6DoF) and movement at a 1:1 scale in the virtual world.

  • Visualize complex environments and look freely in all directions
  • Move at scale through the virtual world with high-precision tracking
  • Interact and navigate intuitively with position-tracked wireless controller

VizMove Walking VR

Presence Through MotionVR-walk-office

VizMove Walking VR is is well-suited for a broad range of applications including behavioral research, industrial training, design visualization, and architectural walk-throughs. Participants can move freely in all directions and experience complete presence and full immersion. Choose this system when navigating the environment with walking is important for the experiment. Furthermore, because more cameras are used, participants can face any direction and assume practically any posture while maintaining accurate tracking.

This VR System includes  has everything you need to create and experience interactive wide-area walking virtual reality applications.

  • Immerse yourself in a wide-area walking environment with full freedom of movement
  • Move at scale through the virtual world with high-precision tracking
  • Interact and navigate intuitively with position-tracked wireless controller

Core Features

  • Wide-area Motion Tracking: Walk, jump, crouch, and even run through the virtual environment at a 1:1 scale with the physical world.
  • Interactivity: Interact and navigate virtual worlds as you would in the real world, through movement
  • Development Ready: Pre-configured system has everything you need to create sophisticated VR applications.
  • Scalable: Cost-effectively expands to meet all of your VR requirements. Add eye tracking, biofeedback devices, haptic devices and more.

VizMove Projection VR

Creation Through CollaborationVR-projection-group

VizMove Projection VR is very easy to set up and it is completely unobtrusive and untethered. Well-suited for a broad range of applications with a team of participants—including behavioral research, industrial training, design visualization, and architectural walk-throughs—and for participant populations where freedom of movement is more critical for uninhibited immersion (autistic, elderly, children, etc.).

VR Projection creates virtual worlds via 3D projections in a “cave” like environment and participants wear lightweight 3D glasses (system includes 5 pairs, can be extended to 15 – 20 total, depending on room size).

  • Visualize designs and complex environments
  • Move at scale through the virtual world with high-precision tracking
  • Share virtual experiences with entire groups to collaborate on data and designs
  • Interact and navigate intuitively with position-tracked wireless controller

Core Features

  • Collaboration: Tap into the power of social presence and visualize immersive 3D environments with small or large teams via large scale 3D projections.
  • Navigation: Freely walk around with wide-area motion tracking and intuitively explore a 3D virtual environment.
  • Development Ready: Pre-configured system has everything you need to create sophisticated VR applications.
  • Scalable: Designed for expansion and customization. Add projectors to support larger audience and increase the tracking area as your needs grow. Add glasses to increase the number of participants.
