Omni Base Project

Project overview

Working with Associate Professor Dominic Thewlis, a specialist in biomechanics, this VR environment not only includes a faithful recreation of Dom’s lab using the latest in 3D scanning and 3D modelling techniques, it also includes integration of specialised hardware in the form of an omni-directional treadmill.

Using the omni-directional treadmill, users can move around a virtual recreation of the lab space in fully immersed VR. Within the virtual world, users can interact with various items to provide direction and purpose for the user, while simultaneously providing researchers with captured movement data.
