Endless gaming possibilities!

Except, ya know, if you want to walk more than 15 feet with your character...

They actually made a big ball that you step inside and walk around in. It rolls but remains stationary relative to the real ground. It's often called a "virtual reality hamster ball", but the technical term is "virtusphere". It's like a treadmill, but you aren't limited to only one direction.

I thought about something like these months ago its all great and all but what can you do if you have to travel larger distances than the room and that cable should be the first thing to get ridden of. it just limits our movement

what if you're standing in a tube and under you there is a ball that turns when you walk?
