Media Vehicle simulates a cocoon
This cool Media Vehicle is capable of nesting you safely into its safe confines that make it look like a cocoon. Once you’re sealed inside it, you can monitor everything that’s happening outside with the help of a large spherical screen. This screen displays grabs from a camera that is located outside it. The four wheels provide stability and fluidity of motion.
The Media Vehicle is described as a ‘personal virtual reality cocoon’. It was developed at the Iwata-Yano Laboratory at Tsukuba University.
