What is your innovation?

The ROVR is a versatile locomotion platform enabling; walking, running, skiing, skate & snow-boarding in VR worlds. US and UK patents have been granted, further IP awaits filing and the Company holds software and process know-how.

ROVRs use a trick seldom realised – that we don’t carry memories of how we move our legs when we walk or run, but we do need necessary brain cues for us to be convinced we are.

The mode of ROVR movement delivers these brain cues and the technologies to do this are crucial to ROVR’s success.

ROVR platforms are light and low profile, easily transported and storable in homes and offices. ROVR VR containment frames are easy to ship, quick to build and dismantle for storage to a similar profile of the platform.

ROVRs are compatible with all VR wired / wireless headsets.
