While VR might be the hot new thing, wearing headsets may not be for everyone -- especially those who want to enjoy it together in the same room.

Panoworks aims to reduce the need for head-mounted displays by merging projection technology with 3D imaging to create a VR experience without the bulk of an Oculus Rift orHTC Vive.

The Panoworks is a panoramic screen enclosure with a top-mounted HD laser projector that translates current VR experiences (be it movies, YouTube videos or games) into 360 imagery. These visuals can be manipulated through a trackball, touchscreen or rotator across the 150 degree viewing space.
