Survios' new competitive adrenaline platformer Sprint Vector heralds a new era of active VR where speed is no longer a limitation. Survios' design director and Sprint Vector developer team will discuss how they built Fluid Locomotion technology. The team will share how they fine-tuned arm and head tracking movement to power sprinting, jumping, climbing and flying at extreme speeds of up to 100mph--all without provoking motion sickness.


In this presentation, attendees will learn how Survios built Fluid Locomotion technology. This will include development processes, from brainstorming to conceptualizing a VR game around the technology, and how they were able to minimize the effects of nausea at extreme speeds.
