VR_I, a fun, unforgettable, immersive Virtual Reality experience playing as part of BIDF, will now be fully accessible to wheelchair users. 

There will now be a "wheelchair avatar," enabling people using wheelchairs to see themselves in a chair in the virtual reality world (whereas before they would be floating in the air). 

Spectators will be equipped with a virtual reality system comprising a backpack, an on-board computer and a virtual reality headset. Markers will be placed on their hands and feet (or wheelchair), enabling them to see their limbs or chair virtually. Behind them, the infrared cameras capture their movements in real time. In the virtual environment, the spectators themselves become virtual and take the form of avatars.

More information to follow.
