An immersive diving experience

Design and development of a fully immersive deep-sea diving experience. 

A beautifully engineered and upholstered platform, integrating VR headset, self-balancing mechanisms and motion controllers. Through a combination of materials, form and motion, this immersive diving experience allows the player to take control of the experience in a natural way. 

An ergonomic housing (designed for HTC Vive controllers) is secured with a self-balancing mechanism to move with the main body. The final system is a beautiful, glossy white fibreglass moulding, trimmed with high-quality black leather, integrating physical movement with the VR headset, to bring the experience alive. 

"Tasked with the challenge of designing and building a bespoke motion simulation platform, The Imagination Factory was pivotal in making this a success. From their initial concept sketches through various rounds of design iteration, to creating something that was both functional and beautiful."
