CirculaFloor is a locomotion interface that uses a set of movable tiles. The movable tiles employ a holonomic mechanism that achieves omnidirectional motion. Circulation of the tiles enables the user to walk in a virtual environment while his or her position is maintained. The user can walk in any chosen direction in the virtual environment.
