Rocking-horse interface

Virsual, the digital rocking horse, created by Melbourne-based, multi-media collectiveENESS, is a wireless rocking horse equipped with its own motion sensor device. As riders saddle up a 3D game is played on the screen.


The faster you rock, the higher your speed across the 3D simulated Virsual’s Island. Along the way towards the end of the rainbow, you travel through fields, collect apples and horse shoes, meet “Advice-Dispensing” Chickens, Friendly Fish and Giant Snails, etc.

ENESS believe that Virsual could be the ultimate toy for the playroom of the future.

Virsual can be rocked till February 6, 2005 at the 3rd Seoul International Media Art Biennale.
