Researchers from the Toyohashi University of Technology have developed a virtual walking system. The system records a person walking and then replays it to another user through the oscillating optic flow and synchronous foot vibrations.

The system comprises a large-field-of-view head-mounted display (HMD) and four vibrators attached to the heels and the forefeet.
