Cybersphere. Artwork showing a man inside the virtual reality cybersphere. The cybersphere is the next generation of virtual reality systems, allowing total immersion in a virtual world. It consists of a large translucent plastic sphere of interlocking plates mounted on a cushion of air, in which users can walk, run and jump. Five projectors linked to a computer create the effect of a wrap-around cinema. The sphere is permanently touching a smaller ball, which tracks the user's movements, and the computer updates the images accordingly. The cybersphere is hoped to find uses in military, architectural and recreational areas. Developed by Julian Eyre of VR Systems UK.
