BluAtom Inc. recently announced the debut of the BluAtomVR system, which allows for a richer and more immersive VR experience. Ideal for theme parks, VR arcades or even military training, the system gives users an unprecedented level of control and freedom when it comes to VR gaming.

The BluAtomVR system is a commercial gaming system "featuring the first immersive wireless VR body motion-tracking system." The system itself is made up of a haptic vest, gun and network hub, all of which can detect and enhance the user's natural body movements. This technology effectively turns the user's body into a game controller that can function without the need for a fixed environment or a VR treadmill.

By integrating each user's own body movements into a game or attraction, the system ultimately delivers a more engaging VR experience.
