Physical Space Requirements

Cartoon by Simon Kneebone: Stay Seated

An indoor floor space (2m x 2m) used for VR should be clear of obstacles, and provide enough space for head and arm movement – residents can be seated in their own room, a lounge or dining chair, or even in a theatre space.

During set-up, a choice can be made to be stationary or to map out a “safe zone” (also known as the Guardian) using the headset for movement such as walking or turning around. The safe zone can be adjusted at any time via the headset settings menu (see Session Outline for more information on the Safe Zone).

NOTE: Our sessions were run using seated positions initially.
