VRGo

Translating movement in the real world into motion in the virtual world

Tilt and Spin.

VRGo unlocks the best virtual world, delivering an experience that correlates with the real world.

Of virtual reality users, 25% to 40% feel nauseas when they move around in the virtual world but stand still in the real world – a problem Kickstarter venture VRGo wanted to overcome.

With the notion that tilting and spinning in the real world would reduce motion sickness, we worked in partnership with VR tech entrepreneur Joe Ryan to create a 360-degree VR chair that responds in reality to the events in the virtual world.

A truly immersive VR experience

A tangible prototype to help Bristol-based VRGo secure Kickstarter funding

Inspired by Weebles – they wobble but they don’t fall down – VRGo rolls, tilts and spins, wirelessly interacting with any game’s keyboard or joypad input to create an intuitive, immersive VR motion experience.

Designed to fit in a small space, VRGo moved efficiently from concept to prototype. We worked with VRGo to leverage manufacturing processes that would evolve and scale production from single and small-batch manufacturing to the mass production needed to take the product to market.

Ignitec’s combined knowledge of product design and development meant we could support VRGo in creating a roadmap, planning steps and leveraging different manufacturing processes, an evolving production process which scaled with them to ensure the company could continue along the path to mass production, using profits from smalls runs to finance ever-larger production batches.

A revolutionary idea made reality

The world’s first VR motion-control game chair

The VRGo unlocks the best virtual world, immersing the user deeper in the experience and delivering higher responsiveness that correlates more naturally with the real world.

When VRGo came to us, the VRGo Chair was a totally revolutionary concept and unproven idea.

We helped them demonstrate the technology and quickly develop a prototype, enabling the company to have a successful Kickstarter and meet the funding goal.

With funding in place, the product could progress to full production.

Working with Ignitec to create the roadmap, Joe was able to take his product to market. VRGo is now available to buy and has applications across industries, from real estate to gaming.

Let’s have a chat

Here are some conversation starters!
Workshops

I need to find new opportunities, explore new technologies and plan product roadmaps

Workshops

We can help you find new opportunities. We run design sprints and idea generation workshops with you and your stakeholders along with our key technical and creative people.

Research

I want to test a new technology or prove a theory

Research

We can help you with the application of science, design and engineering. We build technical demonstrators and lab test bench devices to test, demonstrate and validate new ways of doing things.

Design

I need a design team to bring together a technology product or medical device.

Design

We can help you develop new products, embedded systems and software. We are a broad and experienced team of designers, engineers, electronic engineers and software developers.

Prototypes

I have an idea but I need a proof of concept prototype that I can test

Prototypes

We can build complex electro-mechanical prototypes, PCBs, test rigs and bespoke devices. All of our prototyping and assembly is done in-house.

Manufacture

I have a design that I need to get made

Manufacture

No problem, we help build entire supply chains for our clients. We can help with all forms of manufacture, inspection, assembly, certification and shipping.

Confidential

Will you sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement?

Confidential

No problem, we do it all the time. Get in touch and we will sign your NDA or send you our standard template. We can then discuss your project in confidence.

Or if you’d rather talk in person we can answer any questions
