Roto VR is the world’s first interactive 360-degree chair. Founded in 2015, by video games industry veterans, Elliott Myers and Gavin Waxkirsh, Roto solves many of the current problems associated with using VR.

Roto VR’s flagship product is an interactive virtual reality (VR) chair, which has been developed over a three-year period. It syncs what users feel with what they see, a phenomenon known as gravitational presence.

It does this by auto-rotating wherever the user looks – this is achieved by incorporating accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers inside the Roto Headtracker, a small device that clips on to the user’s own VR headset.
