Moving seat on the arm, safety vests with transmitters

The company MMO announced the commercial version of the chair to be virtual reality. The seat with reflective material rotates 360 degrees, and holding his arm swings in either direction. Everything to reflect as accurately as possible what is happening currently in the game.

This is one of the most advanced gadgets associated with virtual reality, which will go to the broad sales. Production of specialized chair is a Ukrainian company MMO Company, which recently received a safety certificate by TÜV.

To act MMO needs high for at least 4 meters premises with an area of 27 square meters.

Promotional video is impressive. You have to remember that the chair simulates virtual seats. It sounds strange, but it simply means that the equipment works best in conjunction with the games in which you control a car or plane.

The feelings associated with the virtual filming barrels or falling from a height apparently is amazing.

It is not known yet how much will cost equipment, but manufacturers are planning to distribute in the form of leasing, and the chair would rather appear at the point’s entertainment or shopping malls with a reflective tape sign.

Virtual Reality 2.0

MMO appears as an ideal gadget for lovers of virtual reality. Sometimes we hear opinions according to which the actual beginnings of the VR-u we still have to wait. Same helmets worn over the head, even combined with motion controllers, do not allow us to empathize so well in a given situation. It's hard to talk about moving to the virtual world. I still feel that this is just the merit of the screen (actually two screens), which we have right before your eyes.

Partly with the problem that has measured the HTC that your set of virtual reality attached controllers equipped with a vibration function. Speakers mimic the actual impact or shots, what great feel, for example, in the simulator light saber from "Star Wars."

Another idea for the better perception of games in virtual reality projects of special treadmill moving in any direction. The device synchronized with goggles and a computer capable of a more powerful entry into the gaming world with the prospect of the first person, for example. In Warsaw disco VR, or arcade VR, so the running was connected to one of the posts with the game Counter-Strike.

And there are projects safety vests equipped with vibrating motors and speakers, which have to reflect the real world, including VR-those gunshot wounds.

One of the latest devices of this type is Vest's Wooer. Vests were presented in September 2016 year. It has four built-in sensors on the chest and two in the middle of the back, along the spine.

    While long-term mortality statistics on the roads are increasingly positive, as data are lower year on year, if we look at the results more closely, in one case mortality has increased last year. More pedestrians without safety vest died in the cities. How to prevent it? Here are five tips. In 2016 545 people died on Czech roads, 177 of them in the dark. Last year, 32.5% of the total killed in the night was killed. Year-on-year, the number of 30-night casualties has fallen by 30, but their share in the total number of deaths has increased by 1.1 percent. In the long run, most pedestrians without reflective vest die in the dark. In 2016, there were 66 fatal cases. Another 11 fatal cases from their ranks registered statistics in casualties that occurred during the day but in reduced visibility. "Last year, 69.4 percent of pedestrians lost their lives in an accident that occurred in the dark and in general under reduced visibility - in rain, mist, snow, dawn or dusk," says Roman. In the village, 38 pedestrians died in the night accidents last year, by 4 more than in 2015. The accident rate of pedestrian deaths occurred outside the municipality. Supporters of the wearing of security elements therefore have an argument. Last February, the obligation to wear reflective elements outside the community came into force; it is not necessary in cities. However, it is a question of whether the improvements in safety would help the elements, or rather the greater caution of both drivers and pedestrians.

    The best for your safety would be if the reflective elements were copying your front and back outline. However, who would like to go out of the pub or evening out in a reflective vest... "We place the reflective tape in the direction of the road, right side of the body, to the ankle or the wrist," explains Martin. However, if only one tape is available, it is better to place it on your ankle. "The lights of the car are shining from the bottom to illuminate the tape on the ankle before the wrist," notes the head of the BESIP. If you have a reflex tape attached to your wrist, be careful not to cover it with your sleeve. If you feel as good as a reflective tape like a lighted mobile phone, remember that not only do you fail to comply with the statutory duty, but you run the risk that the phone will run out and the driver will not see you. Conversely, if you want to underline the effect of reflection, you can shine with fluorescent colors in the shade or rain. It does not provide the reflection of the light, but it will prolong the distance the driver sees you. Every extra meter decides It would seem like a cumbersome recalculation of every inch, it is not unnecessary malignancy. Every additional meter available to the driver to stop or safely avoid is counted on the unlit road. So, know that pedestrians with visible reflective elements will record the driver at a distance of 200 meters. At 65 km / h, he has enough time to figure out the potential danger, decides what to do, maneuver, and comfortably completes. In dark clothing, the distance you see on the side is shrinking to just 18 meters. At the same speed, the car is blinking in one second. "The driver has virtually no chance to react to the pedestrian and avoid him safely," emphasizes Martin. Reflective material is necessary for night. And we're still talking about speeds that only a few people get out of town. With a speed of 90 kilometers per hour, a chauffeur needs a safe walker of at least 90 meters, and even in the white clothing that is the best reflex, you can only see it at a distance of 55 meters.

    The running backpack is not exactly the part of the equipment that every runner would need like as safety vest, but his time comes when you do not have enough pockets for your elastics, kidneys and other storage items. If you have high demands on cross-country skiing, the Salomon S-LAB Advanced Skin Hydro 12 set is a backpack that can fully satisfy you. To use a running backpack as such I see two main reasons. The first is to take part in trail races, where more mandatory requirements are required, which you simply will not find in your pockets. Among the refreshment stations, it is also usually longer than it can safely run out of water. The second reason has a more practical character. Running is becoming an increasingly popular means of transport and such a morning run to work combines a relatively high travel speed with time savings, as you no longer need to look for further training. In the absence of perfect home and work facilities, the pile of things to transport will also grow accordingly. The storage space is divided into two main parts. One of them is zipped and the other, horizontal, is freely accessible from above. In addition, on the chest straps you will find two bigger bottle pockets and four open pockets and two zippers beneath them. This fragmented layout is based on the quickest approach to stored things. Throw away the little things you need during the race as you like it, but if you want to carry something bigger, like a gym training boot or a lunch box, you are unlucky. It does not fit in small pockets. The backpack weighs an unbelievable 420 grams, and if you put it on your back, it's as if you were wearing only a textile reflective vest. Compared to similar products from other brands or from the lower Salomon range, this is a significant difference. For comparison, the XA10 + 3, which is great as a backpack and I thought for a long time that nothing much more comfortable could not be made, is 200 grams heavier and the difference is understandable. The world of cross-country skiing bags has been thrown in recent days by warrior bags against those who prefer bottles. Arguments are strong on both sides. The bag is more storable, better isolated in frost and warmth, access and drinking is easier, but it is more difficult to fill and one does not need to know how much fluids it still has. Bottles can be filled with a variety of drinks, you have a perfect insight into how much you have drunk and how much you have left, but it can be difficult to insulate in the winter, and the handling itself is more difficult to drink. I personally prefer the bag to be bottled in front of my bottles, and even soft flashes have not changed my mind. It sits on the chest without the slightest movement and does not make any unpleasant impression, but the unusual weight in the front, along with the more complicated manipulation when drinking with me, is exhibited by a stopper bottle. The only situation where I prefer soft flasks is mountain hiking where there is plenty of time to handle the bottles. On the other hand, the shadowy side of this differently packed backpack is the absence of any reflective elements. The only reflective surface is the loop on the underside of the backpack, which is not visible at all angles. If you run for bad visibility on bumpy roads and roads, do not forget the blinker. Not only during life is man Apart from running, we also use a backpack for hiking, mountain biking and cycling or scooter rides. Running on the equipment is the most demanding, so it's not surprising that even with other activities, the backpack behaves just as well.

    For pedestrians there is already a duty to be safely seen while walking along the road. Sometimes Just a few reflective elements that can save your life and help you avoid the fines. See and mainly be seen. This is the motto of the amendment to the Act on Road Traffic, which has brought many changes since Saturday not only for drivers but also for pedestrians. From now on, they would not have gone out of the village under reduced visibility in a place that is not illuminated, coming out without a reflective element on clothing. Otherwise, two thousand shall be taken from the wallet, in the administrative proceedings up to two and a half. A series of tests showed that the figure in dark clothing is visible to the driver of the arriving vehicle at only 18 meters, in white clothing already at 55 meters and with reflective markings already at 200 meters, which is enough distance for a safe escape maneuver. The novel of the law is also welcomed by the young driver Katarina, who has met unimaginably "invisible" pedestrians. "I think the introduction of the reflective material is the right thing, I have seen myself several times that I was a pedestrian at the county road almost overlooked And I have something to do to prevent it from happening, certainly because of this duty to avoid accidents, and even the pedestrian is taken as a legitimate road user, so it should bear the consequences if it causes something, "he thinks. See you? Police officers have been targeting pedestrians since the autumn of 2015. Since then, more than 100,000 reflective tapes have been handed out to unmarked pedestrians. The Tabor policemen took part in the "We see" national prevention event, for example, on February 11, when they handed out bags with reflective stripe and reflective tapes to passers-by at the Kurland shopping center. Even though the amendment to the law came into force already last Saturday, unmarking pedestrians still do not have to be scared yet. "It will be a misdemeanor but we will still explain to the pedestrians why we need to wear reflective tapes and if we have some of them, we will continue to give them away," South Bohemian police spokesman Double. However, all pedestrians also recommend that they take care of their safety and wear reflexive elements in cities where there is poor lighting, driving cars and cyclists. One simply has to light up and the other light reflects. For pedestrians walking along the left side of the road, it is ideal to wear a reflective ribbon on the right hand or foot, which will be directed to the road and an anti-rushing car, will illuminate it. "It is necessary for the pedestrian really to go to the left, so that the passing driver does not shine in his back, but in the face. Cyclists should ideally have tapes on both ankles. The belt not only holds the trouser legs but also has the advantage of being seen from all sides, "explains Double. You do not have to invest in the variety of reflexes if you already own some sportswear or neon-colored shoes.

The Tabor policemen took part in the "We see" national prevention event, for example, on February 11, when they handed out bags with reflective stripe and reflective tapes to passers-by at the Kurland shopping center. Even though the amendment to the law came into force already last Saturday, unmarking pedestrians still do not have to be scared yet. "It will be a misdemeanor but we will still explain to the pedestrians why we need to wear reflective tapes and if we have some of them, we will continue to give them away," South Bohemian police spokesman Double. However, all pedestrians also recommend that they take care of their safety and wear reflexive elements in cities where there is poor lighting, driving cars and cyclists. One simply has to light up and the other light reflects. For pedestrians walking along the left side of the road, it is ideal to wear a reflective ribbon on the right hand or foot, which will be directed to the road and an anti-rushing car, will illuminate it. "It is necessary for the pedestrian really to go to the left, so that the passing driver does not shine in his back, but in the face. Cyclists should ideally have tapes on both ankles. The belt not only holds the trouser legs but also has the advantage of being seen from all sides, "explains Double. You do not have to invest in the variety of reflexes if you already own some sportswear or neon-colored shoes.

    And here it is! We are probably expecting the first really warm weekend of 2017. A lot of us are already polishing bikes for a premiere trip. Looking at the statistics, however, frost runs backwards. Do you know how many cyclists without wearing safety vest died on the roads last year? Do you know your rights and obligations? Surely there is nothing to underestimate! Cycling is one of our most popular hobbies, with about four million bicycles in Czech households. If we ride a bike on a regular basis, it helps us maintain good physical fitness; we also use it as a means of transport or relaxation. Despite all the undeniable benefits that cycling brings, we should also be aware of the risks. Whenever we are sitting on a bicycle, it is useful to recall that cyclists are the most vulnerable road users along with pedestrians. Also, according to the statistics of the Czech Police, the popularity of this sport is redeemed by an increased number of injuries and deaths. The number of road accidents caused by cyclists without reflective jacket is also considerable. "Bikes caused by cyclists are in the order of hundreds of thousands, but cyclists, unlike car drivers, have no liability to protect them, so if they cause an accident and do not have a liability insurance, the damages must be paid," says Jan, Commercial Director of one of the leading Czech insurance companies. How to prepare for a cycling season and what steps to take to prevent accidents and enjoy cycling tours and without unnecessary unpleasant consequences? At the same time, drivers of a non-motorized vehicle, especially cyclists or scooters, caused 2,625 accidents in which 24 people died. Most accidents occurred in Prague, the Central Bohemian region and the Asti Labem Region. In the case of road traffic, the cases where the cyclist accident is the culprit are not unique. They confirm both police statistics and insurance companies. "The cyclist drove down the hill at high speed, he did not manage the steering and got to the opposite direction where the passenger car was driving, but he managed to avoid the cyclist with wear reflective vest, but the two drivers ended up off the road, causing the injured driver to injure a car with a health-rated injury. CZK 50,000, and property damage of CZK 160,000, compensation was covered by bicycle liability insurance, "Jan describes a typical accident that is the subject of an insurance company's performance.

    A fine of up to 2500 crowns! Such sanctions should be brought by an amendment to the road law approved by the government. These sanctions threaten pedestrians who will not have protective reflective elements outside the village. How much does this new measure, which still has to go through the legislative wheel, stand for us? Enhance road safety. This is the intention of the amendment to the Road Act approved by the government. The amendment introduces, among other things, pedestrian obligations to wear reflective elements for impaired visibility, ie in darkness or mist, on roads outside the village. The original draft of the amendment was that the obligation would also apply in municipalities, but it ultimately fell out of law by the legislative council of the government. If these elements do not have pedestrians, they are liable to a fine of 1500 to 2500 crowns. "I am not a great supporter of repressive intervention, we should explain to pedestrians that it is for their safety," said Transport Minister Dan. And how much will the new measure, if it passes through parliament and signed by the president, stand? The most basic equipment is not expensive and can be bought by everyone. In addition, for many security events, these elements are distributed free of charge. The base reflective tapes that we can wrap around our hands or feet cost about 30 to 50 crowns. Like various reflex pendants and stickers, their price is most often between 10 and 50 crowns. Additionally, some people already have problems with their reflective elements because a number of outdated clothes are already wearing them. Reflective elements greatly increase the visibility of pedestrians, with reflective materials being visible at night for up to 200 meters, in white clothing only 55 meters and for example in blue clothing it is only 18 meters. "Reflective material can be seen at night three times as far as white clothing and more than ten times as far as blue clothing. At 75 km / h, the driver needs at least 31 meters (1.5 seconds) to realize the dangers and the corresponding Way, "says Basil. The safety reflective elements can be attached to the hands, feet, back or backpack. However, according to experts, it is best to place them in places where we move like feet or hands.

    See and be seen. A well-known rule for car drivers is also valid for all pedestrians. If outside the village they will move under reduced visibility, visible reflective elements must be visible. If they do not, they are facing a two-thousand-dollar block penalty. The relevant amendment to the Road Act has already been signed by the President and will start to apply after it comes out in the Collection of Laws around mid-February. What is important, however, is that reflexive elements will not be mandatory at night only. The resulting version of the law stipulates that pedestrians must "light" also at dusk, fog, snow or more rain, even in the day. The law does not say how the reflection element should look exactly or what the minimum size should be. "It is not so important for police officers to choose a specific reflective element for pedestrians to make them visible in road traffic, but whether the purpose has been achieved and the pedestrian is visible for the other visitor visibility," says Police spokesman Josef Boca. The size matters According to Romano Boesky of the Road Safety Team, however, the reflection area should be large enough. "As a minimum, I consider the dimensions of a high-quality reflective tape, which is to be placed over the wrist, or even above the ankle on the side facing the center of the road," according to expert studies, pedestrians with reflective accessories placed on moving parts of the body. The luminescent points react roughly three times before the reflective surfaces are statically located on the hull, "explains Boesky. At the same time, he appeals to a suitable color, for example, worse experience is with white tapes. Walkers with a white belt, though, fulfill their duty, but the drivers are less responsive to them. "The figure on the roadside can easily blend in with a white horizontal traffic sign, its role is played by the white color of public lighting or headlamps of anti-traffic vehicles," Boesky says. Project "We See" In the beginning, the pedestrian police do not want to scare off and hand down fines. In cooperation with beside, policemen launched the project "We See", where patrols are handed out free of charge to reflective vests or tapes. "If a traffic police patrol shows a visually impaired pedestrian who moves directly on the road, the need to be seen, "says Boca. In the first phase, 100,000 bands were handed out and this year the police and the Basic workers give out another quarter of a million tapes. "At the same time, we received fifty thousand reflective bags for seniors," adds Boca. Bags and tapes are paid from the damages fund managed by the Czech Insurers' Bureau.

Although she came into effect in February, but officers from Klatovska, unlike some of his colleagues from other regions, in violation of the law still give away penalties. Instead, they are handing out reflective bags, for precautionary reasons. Last week at pedestrians who moved in reduced visibility on roads outside the village, some illumination for example south Bohemian police. "The three pedestrians who violated the provisions of the Act were imposed fines, each worth five hundred crowns. Three pedestrians who violated the same provisions of the Act were policemen, due to age, reproved and instructed to use reflective elements, "said the results of the checks the local police spokeswoman.   It will be similar by police from now on. "The police will no longer be pedestrians only to negotiate but shall, in the absence of reflective elements and giving fines," said Ladmanová and warned that in the coming period, police will be increasingly pedestrians and will supervise them focused and traffic safety events.   SEE YOU Already last autumn launched Ministry of Transport, Besip and Czech Police campaign "We are", which is focused on pedestrians.
