Using VR headsets with the newest and the most advanced titles may bring you many unforgettable moments. Although everything seems to be natural, photorealistic and almost real there is one "but". Either available VR system on the market is capable to compensate and eliminate movements that come from the motion platform. It may be not obvious for dynamic games where scenery changes every frame but the issue is real!

Movement systems generates feeling of the forces that act on your body by doing some moves. Those moves are being recognized by VR systems as head movements which is obviously wrong.

For example, taking a turn while driving the car generates force that push your body outside of the seat. To simulate this behaviour motion platform has to lean top frame. This changes position of the entire cockpit with you inside. VR system recognizes this as your head movements and processes them in the normal way. Without compensation it looks like your head is going to smash the side window. Finally you can find your head outside the window which may be quite hilarious.

Our software uses advanced mathematic formulas to calculate necessary compensation and applies it to the VR headset at runtime. It eliminates platform movements from the VR tracking system causing your experiences to be more immersive and authentic. Compensation module is transparent for end users and can be used with all Motion Systems platforms. If you want to experience VR with enhanced motion experience please install Platform Manager 2.57 or newer.

Supported VR headsets:

Oculus DK2
Oculus Rift
HTC Vive

It is very exciting for us to announce the launch of the Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3.

We continued our development, innovation and technology based on previous feedback and performance to ensure the V3 will exceed user expectation and continue leading the market in design and performance

• Precision - Updated encoders to provide even further accuracy
• External Design - Completely revised in terms of appearance to accommodate for internal power supply and internal micro controller. V3 is now in Stealth Black with laser cut logos
• Cooling - Passive and active cooling method with adaptive fan speed control to ensure the platform can even be used for more demanding purposes such as commercial centers and events whilst not overheating
• Robust - The V2 was known to be a “bulletproof” kind of product however USB filters and mounting design for springs have been improved further
• Speed – V3 max speed is 200% faster than V1
• Tactile Feedback – Vibration features simulating road bumps, road texture, engine vibrations, gear changes, collisions, rubs & bumps. We use in game telemetry data delivering true and accurate feedback
• Noise – We are confident the V3 is the quietest motion platform on the market. The V3 now has acoustical panels inside to reduce noise of operation even lower than the V1 and V2 which were both known for being surprisingly quiet for a motion platform anyway
• Electromagnetic Motor Shaft Brakes - Usually only used in high fidelity and high cost commercial motion platforms this feature prevents any undesired movement of the seat if the platform is switched off

All Next Level Racing retailers will be stocking the Motion Platform V3. To find  your local stockist visit our Buy Page for more information.

Our New Zealand Partners were busy at the Auckland V8 Fan Day with V8 Supercar drivers and fans running hundreds of laps in the Next Level Racing Simulator Cockpits equipped with the latest Thrustmaster wheels. The event was a great success with drivers and fans loving the Next Level GTultimate Cockpits.
