Holovis has announced a new distribution partnership with Sangwha, a Korean digital agency and manufacturer, that will see Holovis become the exclusive reseller for Sangwha's Gyro VR motion systems, as well as an innovation partner on any future developments.

A 360-degree spinning rig, the Gyro VR, performs complete rotations, that, when combined with VR, provides a thrilling experience for riders. As part of the new collaboration, the companies have developed a specialist 2-DOF Gyro VR, exclusively for Holovis, for spaces with a ceiling height of less than 2.2m. It features bespoke middleware and will have the capability to include rider interactivity.

Additionally, Holovis is working with Sangwha to extend the guest experience further with the development of proprietary middleware, that will allow Holovis engineers to programme bespoke motion paths for new IP-led content, created by the Holovis media team.

Holovis will also integrate interactivity into the system making the ride customisable and unique to each rider. The new functionality, designed to drive ride repeatability, will mean that media will be rendered in real-time, so that while each ride will follow a set path, riders will be able to alter things in the virtual world as they happen.

Peter Cliff, creative director at Holovis, said: "We are very excited about the ability to give guests real-time interaction and customised expereinces within an on-rails environment. The new variation for spaces with ceiling heights of 2.2 metres or less will also open up more market sectors and possibilities for this fantastic experience."
