VR facility for swimming / VR game facility

VR facility for swimming

In this design, large swimming pools are transformed into a number of small VR
gaming facilities, where a swimming pool is foldable and when unfolded, will
take on a circular form to occupy less space. To its upper edge there is an air
outlet that can be opened and closed. The position of opening and closing will
be facilitated by the sensor to follow the swimming direction of the user, who
swims in a path preset in the game. However, that the user’s swimming speed
is equal to the air outlet water velocity ensures the user to stay in original place,
and only the changes of VR images leave the impression that user is swimming
forward.
