VirtuSphere is a virtual reality device. It is, as the name suggests, spherical. It works with computer based simulations and virtual worlds, and rotates as the user walks, allowing for an unlimited plane upon which the user can walk. A wireless head-mounted display with gyroscopes is used to both track the user's head movement as well as display the environment of the virtual world. VirtuSphere can serve many purposes, including exercise, video gaming, military training, and virtual museum tours.

The VirtuSphere is a creation of Nurulla and Ray Latypov, whose company, VirtuSphere Inc, is based in Issaquah, Washington.
