Chinese VR Machine Looks Like It Will Make You Sick

At the recent ChinaJoy gaming show in, well, China, a number of companies set up big VR displays. [GIF via VR Scout]

Some of them are similar to set-ups that exist in the West, while others aren't. VR can — and does — get nutty just about anywhere, and China is no exception.

Here is a load of images from Famitsu, 4Gamer and VR Scout showing the different booths and ride-like VR attractions.

The most nauseating-looking one was probably this contraption called "Hero Dream", which does a good job of showing how VR can be incorporated in amusement parks and arcades as well as make people very, very sick.

    I feel dizzy just watching it. Interesting to note it doesn't actually invert the passenger, stopping at 90 degrees. But that might just be because its simulating a wooden rollercoaster, based on the display.

    I remember seeing something similar, but more nauseating, at the arcade in crown casino in melbourne (galactic circus? It was 2001 so my memory is abit hazy). Two passenger unit, fully enclosed dome with a screen instead of vr headsets. It spun and inverted the passengers over and over...enough to make me want to hurl just watching it. But I get pretty bad motion sickness so that goes without saying.
