The CyberWalk project’s CyberCarpet is the latest attempt to provide a comfortable and natural way to use walking to control a virtual reality environment. There are already some similar concept (virtusphere, Circulafloor)  available but none of them as well executed as the cyberwalk. The designers of the CyberCarpet are trying for a more natural walking experience; the first step is to use a relatively large treadmill for the device. The demonstration version of CyberCarpet has a 4.5m x 4.5m walking surface. CyberCarpet will try to present the most realistic version possible of a “holodeck-style” virtual reality environment. The user should be able to walk seemingly endlessly in any direction without leaving a small room.
