Locomotion in immersive virtual environments (IVEs) is one of the major challenges in virtual reality (VR) research. In particular, natural human walking has shown benefits for spatial perception which are generally not supported by other locomotion techniques. However, until now, there is no satisfying walking user interface that provides a solution to the problem of limited physical space. The approaches to date, like omni-directional treadmills, walking-in-place techniques or redirected walking, are not suitable to receive the same benefits for spatial perception known from natural walking in the real world, or do still need too much physical space which makes them unsuitable for most application domains.
