FAQs

Does Voyager® or VR Cause Motion Sickness?

One of Voyager’s points of pride is eliminating motion sickness from the VR experience. VR might have gotten a bad rap in a previous era for causing dizziness and discomfort, but Voyager® is precision engineered for an impossibly smooth ride, from launch to finish. Many people who normally report feeling motion sick in VR are amazed by how they can experience the content on Voyager® with no issues.

Can I Watch Any Movie or VR experience In Voyager®?

Theoretically, yes; however, Voyager® is designed to elevate the VR viewing experience, which means that it works best with VR experiences or films that we have optimized for Voyager® with added motion, haptics and sometimes scent. If you are a content creator, we can work with you to integrate your VR content into the chair. Contact us.

How Can I Get Voyager® Chairs For My Location?

Please fill out the form and we will get back to you right away.

What VR headsets do you use?

Voyager® aims to work with the best VR headsets available. We currently support Samsung Odyssey, Oculus Rift, Oculus Go and HTC Vive Pro.

Does Voyager® support interactive and 6DOF content, or only 360 video?

Voyager® supports 6DOF and interactive content, not just 360 video. We offer and SDK for Unity and for Unreal to integrate motion and haptics into the experience.

How can I distribute my VR film with Voyager®? What is the financial model?

We will be distributing select VR films in 2019 and paying creators a percentage of gross ticket sales. Contact us about your project to see if there’s a fit.

What is the process like to get a VR experience into the chair and add motion? How long does it take?

Integrating motion, haptics and scent for 360 video is fairly straightforward. We will assign one of our VR Motion Editors to work with your creative team, and start designing motion cues collaboratively with you to enhance the story. For most VR 360 films under 15 minutes, this can be accomplished in a few days. For VR experiences that are built in game engines, we will supply you with our SDK for Unity or Unreal (depending on the platform) and assign you a VR Motion Designer to work with you on the integration. Depending on the level of complexity, the process can take a few days or a few weeks. Contact us about your project and we’ll be happy to give you an estimate on timing and budget.

How much does a Voyager® VR chair cost?

Contact us for a quote. Financing and lease options are available.

Do you rent the chairs for events? Can you ship them?

Yes! We rent chairs by the day, week or month. Voyagers® have been used at events all over the world and can ship almost anywhere. We can provide turnkey solutions with not only the chair, but also for staffing, shipping & logistics, VR content integration and data analytics to give your event that extra wow factor. Subject to availability and shipping location.
