Constrasting with Room Scale, Standing-only VR is a VR design pattern that only lets the user experience it from one main perspective point. It can be 6DOF or 3DOF.
Some room-scale experiences give you enough locomotion/teleportation options that you do not need to move your feet to participate in the experience. They would still be considered “room-scale”.
Examples of Standing Only experiences
- Beat-Saber (sort of)
Similar to Standing VR, seated VR experiences can be experienced while sitting in a chair.
If you do not need to be able to complete a 360 rotation (like on a swivel stool), this can be considered “Toilet Ready” VR.
Exmaples of Seated VR Experiences
- VR Regatta
- I Expect You To Die
