Live demo at CES - Las Vegas

Meet the creators, Yaw VR was featured in National Television Hungary (English subtitle)

Special offer for game and training centers!

Pledge Yaw VR - special edition and you will get Yaw VR Pro. Yaw VR Pro is the same as Yaw VR, but designed for extreme intensive use. 

Special addition for all backers!

We will deliver all Yaw VR simulator with 4 Yaw VR games! 
If you preorder Yaw VR, you will get a flight and car racing simulator and a space battle and roller coaster app. (Apps will be compatible with Galaxy Gear VR, Oculus and HTC Vive)
Please note, Yaw VR will be compatible even with all major games on the most important VR platforms!

 SMALL AND LIGHTWEIGHT

Small means a diameter of 29 inches and a height of 15 inches when folded, so be careful, not to lose sight of it. Its weight is just 33 lbs, so you can easily pick it up and move along.

HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE

Even expensive, industrial simulators have limited movement range, but Yaw is special. It has unlimited, 360 degrees yaw movement capability on the vertical axis, and on the horizontal axes there’s 50 degrees freedom, which is also exceptional.

COMPATIBLE AND OPEN SOURCE

Yaw is compatible with SimTools software and more than 80 different simulator apps including the most well-known and popular simulator brands. We are also working on making Yaw compatible with other non PC platforms like Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR and PlayStation VR. In addition Yaw is open source, so you can develop your own software even for a completely new usecase.

DESIGNED FOR GAMING

This video was only recorded to demonstrate Yaw VR's speed and dynamics and reaction time. The steering wheel, pedal mounting, foot holder and the motor's drive control are still temporary.

 HTC Vive test:

 Flight Simulator Test

 Elite Dangerous Fight

Rollercoaster Test HTC Vive

 Rollercoaster test - Oculus Rift

We provide adjustable pedal and steering wheel or joystick holders for flight and racing simulators. 

 

The preparation of racing simulator test has been started, this is the first mounting of steering wheel and pedals and shifter. More updates with video coming soon!

SILENT

When you are using YAW you hear almost nothing, so your Neighbours or Parents will sleep peacefully while you are playing with Grand Turismo at 2AM in the Night.

STRONG

This 15kg simulator can hold over 200kg (440lbs) of weight. (Recommended until 150kg, 330lbs)

FAST

For flight simulators not really necessary high speed but for racing speed could be the key. On just 40% of full power Yaw VR reaches almost 160 degrees/sec.

 

COLORFUL AND STYLISH

Choose Yaw VR - Special edition and you can select your favourite color or even a custom pattern.

 


PORTABLE (SERIOUSLY)

Risks and challenges

Hardware is hard, that's why we have already started the preparation of production.
YAW VR Motion Simulator was designed to be as simple as possible. That's why we could decrease the price and increase the reliability and make the production simple.

However some difficulties and unexpected events may be happened, but as during the prototyping we got many experiences in those situations we believe that we are going to solve all the issues.

We want to note that the final product could be differ from the current design but we promise that we do the best to ensure all the changes will eventuate a better and more enjoyable product.
