Claims:
1. Subject matters which are regarded as an invention: a. Feedback of the virtual world to the gamer in 3 dimensions (up, down, left, right, forth, forward, backward, tremble and whirl to overload to the gamer) b. Ability to let fall and push the gamer in 3 dimensions as the gamer is protected by helmet and soft interior of the sphere. c. Ability to walk/run in any direction in the sphere for gamer as he/she will whirl the sphere by the weight of his/her weight. d. Ability to feel rain in the virtual worlds for the gamer because of the water supply from the top of the hold-down mechanism. e. Ability to jump, clamber and fall in the virtual worlds for the gamer because the sphere has soft and porous interior. f. Ability to breath in the virtual worlds for a gamer as the sphere has numerous little holes in it (porous interior). g. Ability to see and hear the virtual worlds for a gamer as he/she bears the helmet with little screen, headphones and microphone in his/her helmet. This helmet provides double functions: first—preserves gamers' head when he/she falls, somersaults and the second function is visual, hearing, speaking effects in the virtual worlds. h. The ability to fight with different types of weapons in virtual worlds. The gamer will have little soft stick in his hand which in virtual world will be shown as any weapon (e.g. gun, machine gun, huge sword etc.) Stick is prepared from soft material in order not to make injuries to the gamer during overloads. i. The reading of the sensors data from the gamer by the computer. The sensors are attached to helmet, stick (representing gun, sword, etc. in the virtual worlds), belly, wrists, elbows, knees and ankles of the gamer. These sensors will read the position of the gamer in the virtual world.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The invention represents virtual world where people can fight (fists or swords), run, shoot. The uniqueness of the invention is that the computer world can exert influence at a gamer by overloads. Thus the gamer will feel all the amenities of the virtual world. He/she will fall, feel pushes, turns and trembling of ground in 3 dimensions.

This invention will solve the problem of the need of computer gamers in needed feedback from the virtual worlds and approximation of the computer world to the reality.

The mechanism is set at he solid bearing which has piles in order to keep all the bearing in the steady position.

The engines allow to move the hold-down mechanism in any direction (3D) and rotate the sphere with gamer inside.

The game begins after a person entered the sphere through door (FIG. 9 Drawing 3) in the starting position of the mechanism (Drawing 3). When the gamer entered the sphere and put on helmet and took the stick the game begins.

The sphere is supported by hold-down mechanism with wheels which allow the gamer to walk, run, crawl etc. inside the sphere in any direction. By the weight of the gamer the sphere is rotated freely inside the hold-down mechanism.

For example, during the game a person needs to climb to a hill. In this case the wheels will put up little resistance to the gamer and the gamer will have to make efforts to climb.

For example, grenade detonated and in virtual world the gamer should be thrown off backwards. In this case the sphere makes sharp rotation inside the hold-down mechanism (using wheels-engines) and person will fall.

For example, a gamer has been tossed up during the game. In this case the engine which expands and folds parabolic stick (FIG. 3 Drawing 1) will expand it and the hold-down mechanism will be sharply moved up (Drawing 6).

Of course the computer software should predict a little scenario of the game and position of the gamer in order to place the sphere with hold-down mechanism in corresponding position and be ready for future overloads.
