CoVR Force-Feedback Robotic Interface for VR

The idea of using robots to make VR more immersive is not new. CoVR is all about using robots for a large scale force feedback system. It has a column mounted on a 2D Cartesian ceiling robot to resist users’ actions such as pushing and leaning. It also acts on users by pulling and moving them. It can also carry up to 80kg objects.

The above video shows how such a system enables users to get a more realistic experience in virtual words while wearing goggles.
