People trying virtual reality for the first time will often try to walk, yet this type of input is not supported by any VR platform. We offer a plugin for the Unity engine that enables walking in place, which lets you efficiently navigate virtual environments using your feet and removes the need for a controller or additional sensors.
Studies show VR-step is more immersive than using auto-walk or controller based input, while being just as efficient for navigation.
VR-step uses sensors that are ubiquitous in smartphones and it works with any VR smartphone adapter.
Studies have shown that walking-in-place can reduce or avoid simulation sickness, as it generates proprioceptive feedback.
