With Samsung’s Gear VR headset and a mechanical skateboard, D-Box simulated a downhill longboard experience.

“Basically what you have underneath are electromechanical actuators that are synced with content that give you all of the texture of the road, all the curves,” says D-Box’s VP Sales Yannick Gemme.

Although the mechanical skateboard isn’t something one can feasibly purchase… with time the VR experience will continue to improve while the cost continues to decrease. Like the first IBM computer that had a price tag of $5,000 in today’s currency.

What virtual environment do you want to experience?
