Porche collaborated with entertainment-technology start-up holoride to set up an in-car virtual reality feature by connecting real-time physical feedback inside a moving vehicle to content in a VR headset. Through this passengers of the car can experience an immersive journey like travelling to outer space where the sound and visual effects will be adopted by the movement of the car. Porsche is launching this pilot project at the Porsche Experience Center in Los Angeles.

To get this feature up and going, holoride will use driving data from a Porsche Cayenne, such as steering, accelerating and braking, to adapt the experience that will match the movement of the car. This approach will enable to reduce motion sickness by matching what passengers see and feel with almost no latency.
