Vortx is the world’s first 4D simulator that can physically recreate any virtual environment in the comfort of your home or office. It reads and analyzes audio and video data in real-time to create physical effects that you can feel to match what you see and hear; because Vortx processes live data that means it is compatible with ANY PC game title and every digital video platform.
Imagine feeling the effects of bullets whizzing by and battlefield explosions in Battlefield. Or what about the swirling inferno of Drogon’s fiery breath in Game of Thrones?
With Vortx you won’t just see and hear the action — you’ll feel it.
We all remember the golden age of simulator rides and get nostalgic about experiences like Star Tours, Honey I Shrunk the Kids and Captain EO. We’ve seen surround sound become the norm, 3D get better, VR make leaps and bounds, and AR/MR emerge as real consumer technologies.
While growth has been unprecedented, immersive experiences have always been limited to sight and sound. We’re here to change that.
The magic of Vortx lays in our patented software engine. The engine uses adaptive algorithms to analyze scenes in real-time then translates on-screen effects into real world sensations you can feel, like wind, fire and ice.
Where traditional immersive devices like haptic/rumble feedback or VR headsets and peripherals have stumbled, Vortx needs no outside integration or back-end development. Gaming titles and movies no longer need support from the source – Vortx just works. With EVERY game and ANY video platform (e.g. Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, etc.) for new or old content.
Vortx challenges the status quo of passive observation and engagement by adding real-world, real-time environmental effects to every media experience. Not only will Vortx enhance every viewing situation, it will make you want to re-watch everything you ever have in the past.
Driven by our patented Environmental Experience (EX) algorithm, Vortx recognizes and responds to on-screen elements in real-time to replicate events such as airflow and temperature changes. No developers or coding needed!
Built by and for gamers, Vortx was created to be easily integrated with your existing PC setup. Simply plug in and start experiencing.
REAL-TIME ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS
Vortx analyzes what is happening on-screen to create physical effects and sensations you can feel. From fiery explosions to the rush of wind at high speeds, Vortx puts you in the center of the action so you can feel what you see.
Simply turning the oversized dial will give you the ability to adjust the intensity level of all the effects, from temperature to wind speed.
CUSTOMIZABLE USER PREFERENCES
You’ll have complete control of the LED lighting should you want to customize them to match your keyboard and mouse. You’re also able to direct airflow with the adjustable nozzle to ensure that you’re truly immersed, no matter where you go.
IN GAMING ENVIRONMENTS
Enhance every gaming experience with acute awareness of the environment around you and your characters. Vortx works with any and all your favorite gaming titles from FPS, to MMO/RPGs and racing simulators. Now you’ll finally be able to feel the power of every explosion, high-speed movement and teleportation, or even the warmth of a burning enemy.
IN VIDEO ENVIRONMENTS
Surround sound is a thing of the past; Vortx will make your cinematic experiences even more enjoyable and real with its innovative immersion technology. Compatible with all digital video content including streaming services such as Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, Vortx will make sure that you’ll feel everything the director captured.
IN VR ENVIRONMENTS
Virtual reality is only as real as the user perceives it to be. Vortx works in conjunction with popular VR devices like Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive to even further enhance each and every VR experience. By adding environmental cues like whispering winds or ambient warmth, Vortx will trick your mind into believing the situations to be lifelike and real.
