How do I get the most out of my ride?

Advice for an optimal experience

We know the feeling of getting dizzy when watching a movie in a car. But by matching what you see and what you feel with almost no latency, we are able to reduce motion sickness. Being in transit becomes time well spent.

To get the most out of your time we suggest that you familiarize yourself with your VR headset. If you are using a VIVE Flow you can find helpful advice on their official support page. Take some time to make sure you can wear the device as comfortably as possible and see everything clearly.

holoride’s Elastic SDK technology is excellent at synchronizing the movements of your car with your experience in VR. However, there are rare circumstances where you might get a look behind the curtain and have to pace yourself. 

For example driving on an incline is not being represented in the holoride VR experience. For small to moderate inclines human brains tend to be excellent at lying to themselves and not even noticing or ignoring the mismatch. But in extreme cases you might find yourself experiencing discomfort while driving in an especially hilly area. In that or any other case of discomfort, take a short break from playing. Games can always be paused and resumed. 

For optimal comfort it is advisable to take short breaks from playing depending on your personal level of acclimatization to VR. Especially if holoride is your first VR experience, give your body and mind some time to get used to the new experience.
