How Vortx Works

How Vortx Works

Vortx is the first in-home system that bridges real and virtual environments. Vortx controls the airflow and temperature of its nearby surroundings to replicate on-screen scenarios, such as explosions or gunfire. By analyzing what is happening in the scene Vortx emulates both subtle and overt environmental cues to transport you into the heart of the action.

“...add an exhilarating element to [VR] gameplay — short bursts of air for near-miss gunfire, larger for explosions...It goes further by adding a heating feature, which lets you feel a campfire’s glow — or that dragon’s breath.”
