Roto VR Chair Begins Shipping to Developers

They've started to ship to developers with consumer shipments beginning in February, 2018.

If the rotation is driven by your head position, then rotation is not connected to the visual representation of the VR world. Also, the system seems rather slow, compared to how fast people turn their bodies around.

Sounds like a system designed to induce nausea. Certainly do not buy, until you get to do a test drive yourself.
