U.S. Patent No. 10,639,557
Embodiments of the invention provide for a motion-synchronized virtual reality experience. In particular, in some embodiments, the invention includes a motion platform to impart a shared motion experience to a plurality of passengers, individual head-mounted displays providing for personalized viewpoints, and a variety of immersion-enhancements. A common ride model to controls the motion platform in order to simulate a ride for a plurality of passengers. The passengers' virtual-reality headsets depict the progress of the ride through the virtual-reality world. These headsets track the individual passenger's head or gaze to allow the user to adjust their angle of view in the virtual world simply by looking around. As such, different passengers can be looking in different directions simultaneously, allowing a much greater immersion than the single fixed perspective of prior ride simulations.
