Sphere Eight360 Nova - the most realistic simulator for virtual reality (2 photos + video)


A stay in self-isolation awakened inpeople have a wide interest in the latest technologies, including virtual reality technology. Before the pandemic, the Eight360 startup was ready for the presentation of the most realistic simulator for people in the virtual space. Unlike gaming chairs that only simulate movement, the Eight360 Nova literally moves the player in real space. Now the gamer will be able to appreciate the steep turn on the race track and the entry into the "dead loop" on the fighter.

This is the third and today the most spectacularThe Eight360 startup model is pre-engineered as a full sphere with a diameter of 2 meters and a mass of 500 kg, placed on a three-petal support. A wheel is built into each "petal", allowing you to rotate the sphere in all three directions by 360 degrees at a speed of up to 180 degrees per second. Such a rotation speed is commensurate with the effect that occurs when a fighter leaves a steep peak and will deliver gamers in virtual space new sensations that were previously inaccessible.


The Eight360 Nova sphere is equipped with a powerful computer,virtual reality headset, battery, fasteners for the chair and mounted modules. In the basic configuration in the sphere, there is one armchair around which users form a space corresponding to a future journey into the virtual world. It can be a cabin of a racing car, a fighter or even a spaceship.

Eight360 plans to supply non-spheresfor gaming purposes only. New devices will be able to become highly efficient simulators for specialists engaged in rescue operations and exploration. It is possible that the simulator will be used by the military to train pilots and drivers of heavy equipment in extreme combat conditions.


At the same time, it is already available for gamersthe ability to integrate the Eight360 Nova with gaming platforms and applications X-Plane, DCS World, Virtual Battle Sim 3, Dirt Rally, iRacing and Project Cars. However, the Eight360 startup primarily relies on the use of Nova as a simulator and will not sell the scope. Large corporations will be able to rent Nova at a price of 150 thousand dollars a year and use them to train their staff.
