    The user in this image is riding a Tectrix VRbike.
  • The VRbike is only being used as an input device.
  • The bike sends the pedal velocity and lean angle to the simulation.
  • The user changes his velocity in the environment by pedaling faster or slower and changes his facing direction in the environment by leaning.
  • The user can observe his or her interactions with the environment via a tracker and head mounted display.
