Disney’s groundbreaking ‘HoloTile’ lets you walk anywhere in VR

Disney is introducing a new product that absolutely changes the Virtual Reality (VR) game.

They call it the HoloTile, and it is essentially a mat made of tiles that move in concert in order to allow you to move in VR even though you’re actually never leaving the same spot.


HoloTile is designed for VR use, and it is going to be compatible with various VR headsets.

You don’t necessarily need to buy super expensive headsets such as the Apple Vision Pro to use it.

The idea is that you can wear a VR headset and safely walk, or even run, on the HoloTile without falling over or bumping into obstacles.

It’s genius.

And there’s more, too.

Two people can use it at the same time and move independently, because it recognizes each pattern and adjusts accordingly without affecting the other person.
