Yaw2: This impressive motion simulator takes us 10 years into the future!

VR hardware design companies are constantly striving to improve the user experience. Many then work on projects to develop gadgets that can complement traditional virtual reality headsets.

The young Hungarian company Yaw VR is one of them. As a reminder: The first motion simulator was presented in January 2018. The device has been announced as a solution that can improve the feeling of immersion in VR experiences that the user must be seated in. To surf on the success of this first model, the young shoot launched the Yaw2.

A phenomenal success

With this new product, Yaw VR wants to make VR content even more intense. To mark the occasion, she opened a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. To say the least, it’s a huge success as the fundraising goal of $ 100,000 was exceeded in barely a day.

In five days, the company made $ 900,000. And at this point in time, the million dollar mark has already been exceeded. With the program only ending in June, there is still plenty of time to do some phenomenal performance.

A more practical design

Unlike the first model, which was semi-dome-shaped, this new motion simulator from Yaw VR has a much more professional design. Plus it’s bigger. In addition to being aimed at gamers, it can be used as a relaxation chair or even a desk.

The stand can be rotated up to 40 ° for rolling and up to 70 ° for nodding movements. An optional module called Yaw Plateform enables 360 ° rotation. In fact, the Yaw2 is available in three versions. The basic model is delivered without a chair, so that the buyer can attach his favorite chair to it. You just need to make sure it is compatible with the mounting bracket.

Compatible with most VR headsets on the market

The three variants of the Yaw2, namely the standard version, the pro version and the pro arcade version, support most existing VR headsets. We’re thinking in particular of the Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index, PlayStation VR, and Windows Mixed Reality, to name a few.

The Yaw VR game engine currently supports nearly 20 titles, while Yaws Sim Racing Studio is compatible with over 80 racing games. On the price side, the base model with early access offers costs $ 1,090 without a seat, while it costs between $ 1,490 and $ 2,020 to afford the Yaw2 Pro.
