In order to enhance the kinds of experiences that people can have in immersive virtual reality worlds, Russia-based Interactive Labs created a unique sensor-connected cycling experience. People are able to hop onto a physical electric trike in the real world and at the same time, be led through a colorful race track as if on a virtual cycle.

Interactive Labs recently showcased this cutting-edge experience at VRLA. This kind of technology is indicative of the future of virtual reality technology, which seems to be moving in a direction that involves the use of external props in order to make the simulated worlds seem more realistic and engaging.

As well as being purely novel, this kind of VR technology has applications for everything from video gaming to automotive marketing.
