However, in China, a recent 3D experience displayed a low technology approach that surprised and amused a large number of online viewers worldwide!

Manual Virtual Reality?!

Here is a video of a picture of a shop in China that displays a service that claims in a person can actually experience VR in China.
Inside the shop, there is a man standing on a platform holding onto a handrail while one of the shop’s staff is standing behind him!

Also, there are two monitors showing a rollercoaster ride and when it begins, the man behind the user starts to move and shake the platform to match the bumpy ride of the rollercoaster in the monitor! Is this really 3D?

What did you think?

The strength of the man who is swaying the platform behind the customer is very impressive! Since this attraction is supposed to replicate the experience and sensations of a rollercoaster, it may well be that this low-tech version of “virtual reality” was quite effective!
