Roto kickstarter launched today at EGX rezzed

Small British company helmed by entrepreneur, Elliot Myers takes VR immersion to the next level with ‘Roto’. Roto is a motorised Virtual Reality platform that addresses the fundamental issues of VR while enabling the most natural and totally immersive virtual reality experience currently available with any headset. Because of the seated, motorised and wire free nature of Roto, users feel physically as well as visually, more immersed in the virtual world than ever before.

To fund the final stage of Roto’s production cost, the founders are turning to Kickstarter to raise £85,000 which will allow them to bring Roto to market in time for Christmas 2015. Roto has already found some solid support in the press and the wider industry at large since first announcement only two weeks ago!

“It’s a very cool product, and something that I instantly want to buy myself :)” 
Patrick O’Luanaigh, CEO nDreams Ltd

“I’m completely in love with the product. Wow! Just wow!” 
Steve Drash CEO, Titans of Space

“You need to try this!” 
Inessa Kivikangas, CEO Windlands

“What an amazing product! Watching a movie in a chair like this would be epic! Directors would love playing with this input.” 
Dylann Flinn, Rothenberg Ventures

“Describing it in so few words doesn’t really do the Roto justice I wasn’t banking that a motorized chair could change my experience of VR as drastically as it did!“ 
Jamie Rigg, Reviews Editor, Engadget

“Personally, I’m hugely excited – and I can’t wait to be wandering the streets of Los Santos in the chair.” 
James O’Malley, Tech Digest

“It’s a sign of maturity when developers create devices built to serve existing technology rather than create new devices for that market. Since the Roto chair does exactly that, it’s a sign that VR has truly arrived as a technology.” 
Jason Brick, PSFK
