Unlocked Reality Inc.'s original offering opened on December 20, 2021 and was completed on April 8, 2022. Except for the Updates section which may contain more recent information, the information on this page was accurate as of April 8, 2022.

Unlocked Reality Inc.

Unlocked Reality Makes Virtual Reality Movement Natural & Fluid


Unlocked Reality is a virtual reality hardware accessories company focused on solving problems that Headsets, Treadmills, Slidemills, and Hand Trackers can’t solve.

Unlocked Reality Makes Virtual Reality Movement Natural & Fluid

Our team is building a solution for VR locomotion that allows users to move naturally and untethered while staying in one place.

Deal Highlights

Unlocked Reality is working to improve the entire virtual reality experience.

  • Unlocked Reality’s platform aims to transform locomotion in a virtual environment. Say goodbye to rigs, harnesses, and clunky devices as our patent pending design provides freedom in movement.
  • There is a huge demand for products that support VR, XR, AR and the metaverse. VR adoption stats for 2020 showed that there were 57.4 million VR users in the US and 90.9 million AR users, according to Finances Online.
  • Our target market of enterprise is still in very early adoption of VR products. Capgemini Research Institute’s 2018 research showed that 82% of companies that are currently in the process of implementing AR and VR solutions say the benefits are either meeting or exceeding their expectations.
  • The global augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) market is forecast to reach 30.7 billion U.S. dollars in 2021, rising to close to 300 billion U.S. dollars by 2024 [1]. Yet, we believe there are no great VR platforms.
  • We believe Unlocked Reality has the marketing and product-design potential to spearhead the virtual reality movement.
“What Unlocked Reality is building is something that really opens the gateway to the metaverse. Their use of maglev technology gives users this effortless, seamless but still realistic experience of walking and moving around a digital space.”
- Lori-Lee Elliott, CEO - Future sight AR


Failure of natural immersion

Even though we are surrounded by all types of evolving tech, people have still not been given the access to allow their body to freely follow where their mind wanders in VR. With the power to fully immerse minds, Unlocked Reality has the opportunity to change the world.

common failed user experiences with VR

VR headsets let you see with your eyes and hands, but how you move is still bounded & restricted. Currently, in the VR space, you have no control over your movement. In today’s landscape, common experiences include:

  • Running out of play space
  • Bumping into things
  • Motion sickness
  • Losing your sense of immersion

Although there have been attempts to give people mobility via treadmills, slide mills, & trackers, they all have fallen short of capturing true movement; this is due to the fact that your movements are being translated poorly.

Unlocked Reality is focused on providing users the ability to free the body to follow where the mind wanders.

“The ability of the platform to recognize a user's unique gait pattern and predict their movement through machine learning is a GAMECHANGER. I believe this will help customize the virtual reality therapy experience for each patient's functional ability”
- Veena Somareddy, CEO/Co-Founder of Neuro Rehab VR


Unlocked Reality VR Base Maglev Concept


  • Allow natural movement
  • Connect your body’s senses
  • Enable untethered exploration in an alternate reality
Immersion is the Gateway

We believe our patent pending method of dynamically reducing friction is unlike most other existing VR platforms. Using the platform (and shoes), we are working towards providing users the ability to move untethered as the friction keeps them in one place.

Dynamic friction reduction is achieved by controlling the users’ interaction with the ground or platform surface by physically changing their exposure to either a high or a low friction surface (dependent on the method) at specific times during a walking cycle in order to prevent the user from displacing themselves.

There are two different methods we could use to achieve this effect: An economic mechanical method that relies on ball transfer units and a much more robust method that relies on magnetic levitation. Magnetic levitation (maglev) enables an object to float above a solid surface. Ball transfer units utilize rolling friction to allow objects to slide over them fluidly.

Opportunity & Solution

Both methods are driven by machine learning. Using sensors, the algorithm can recognize:

  • User’s unique gait pattern
  • Tracks their activity
  • Accurately predicts their movement

Using this prediction we can control the system to keep in step with the user and support any users’ movement naturally.

Currently we are planning on building individual-sized platforms, but our methodologies could be scalable to platforms of any size, from personal to multiuser.

Our Competition

Unlocked Reality competition
VR Awards nominated Unlocked Reality for Rising VR Company of the year (Nov 2021).

Business Model

Unlocked Reality plans to sell directly to consumers and enterprises. We envision growing with enterprise clients through value-added resellers (VAR) and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) sales.

Through superior customer care, regular communication, cutting edge technology, and the announcement of new markets and new products, we believe excellent growth is possible. As the world’s technology advances, businesses begin to integrate VR to advance their work and more consumers acquire a personal VR Set, we believe the demand for true immersion, and Unlocked Reality’s platform are poised to grow.

Go To Market

Not only is the virtual reality and augmented reality market massive, but it is also going exponential.

In 2020, the global VR headset market size was valued at $7.81 Billion USD. From 2021-2028, it is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28.2%, according to Grand View Research.

We plan to be focusing on enterprise + consumer verticals where VR movement must be natural and fluid for a truly immersive experience.


  • Physical Rehab & Therapy
  • Enterprise Sales Training
  • Healthcare - operating room training for doctors and nurses
  • Military Simulation & Training - Army Catches RIDE to Extended Reality Future
  • Engineering - virtual inspection of critical infrastructure
  • Fitness - especially for pro/college athletes
  • Remote Live Events - Worldwide access to Concerts & Shows


  • Location-Based VR experiences (Arcades)
  • Gaming and Entertainment for home VR enthusiasts
  • Travel Experiences i.e. virtual safaris over a terrain
Enterprise and Consumer verticals

Success to Date

  • Patent Pending system and method
  • Initial investment of $110,000
  • Two maglev POCs complete
  • Prototype for UR base Econ near complete
  • Nominated for Rising VR Company of the Year (VR Awards In Nov ‘21)
  • Concluded work on our first prototype
    • Can match a similar fidelity of slide mills that already exist on the market, even with many incomplete key features
  • Second prototype underway
    • Upon completion, we plan to strive for a production-ready prototype

Company Vision

As we go forward, starting with locomotion, we plan to make a family of products to be the standard for fully immersive VR.

We are creating tools so people can have more meaningful experiences in VR and the Metaverse.

Just as we are working with the evolution of internet/web experiences through Web 2.0, we are building the building blocks for experiences with Web 3.0. VR needs tools to bring the rest of the body into Virtual Reality and those are what we intend to build.

Virtual Reality + MagLev = Next Level of the Metaverse
