Cybershoes: A Step Into Virtual Reality Games
Virtual reality enthusiasts can step into new worlds like never before with VR company Cybershoes GmbH, (https://www.cybershoes.io/ ), showcasing Cybershoes®, an affordable, innovative VR accessory that is worn on your feet, and allows you to literally walk, run or flee through virtual reality.
The Cybershoes are strapped directly onto your feet, and as you are seated in a swivel bar stool, you’re ready to begin your VR journey. The Cybershoes are compatible with any VR game, and function with SteamVR, the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality, and Pimax. With the Cybershoes at your feet, all of your moments are controlled by your own physical movement, so you can walk alongside giants through snow-covered canyons, gallivant through battlefields set alight with dragon fire, or charge into abandoned cities to eradicate the mutant hordes as if you were actually there.
Cybershoes recently unveiled during its CES debut in January its newly redesigned prototype that features an improved grip for faster and smoother turning.
"VR is an endless space, but until now it was not really easy to walk in," says Michael Bieglmayer, inventor and CEO of Cybershoes GmbH. "We had to experiment a lot until we realized that the solution was not to be found in standing but in sitting. Then one thing led to another. And the result inspires: because nobody can escape the strong immersion that is possible with Cybershoes. That's why the swivel chair you're sitting on is forgotten in no time. We were truly impressed to experience the reaction and receive feedback from the tech-savvy CES audience and are now looking forward to a similar reaction from the Indiegogo platform."
Cybershoes benefits and features include:
● Affordability -- The Cybershoes are highly affordable to anyone who already owns their own VR setup.
● Easy Setup – The calibration and linking to your VR rig is incredibly simple and getting ready to play is as easy as sitting in your favorite swivel bar stool and strapping on the Cybershoes to your feet.
● Advanced Immersion Through Natural Movement – The Cybershoes are able to immerse players in the experience by letting them control their in-game movement by actually walking in place, the player actually feels as if they are their in-game character. So, as you play using the Cybershoes, your brain perceives that you’re standing and not sitting when you explore a different world.
● The Apex of Usability and Low Price – The Cybershoes offers a VR movement product in term of accessibility and price that is not matched in the industry. Most VR movement accessories are extraordinarily expensive, as well as have enormous space and power requirements and professional installation and setup, well beyond the average consumers’ means.
● A Gamut of Compatibility and Functionality -- The Cybershoes are compatible with any Steam application that utilizes touchpads or motion controllers, as well as Oculus and Microsoft Mixed Reality via the Steam platform.
● Steam VR Optimization: Thanks to the new treadmill support software from Valve, Cybershoes now integrates optimally with SteamVR for a more immersive experience.
● More Uses Beyond Gaming -- The Cybershoes benefits go beyond gaming as it can be employed in training and planning for industrial facilities, physical rehab programs for the elderly, and architecture and construction previews.
● Thoroughly Tested -- The Cybershoes has already undergone testing with more than 3,800 individual users.
● Accurate Directional Tracking -- The player’s vision is independent of the walking direction of the Cybershoes, meaning you can fully observe your surroundings while you walk, duck or bend to pick up objects thanks to highly accurate motion trackers in Cybershoes
● Fitness Through Gameplay – A low stress and impact experience allows you to exercise while you play.
● Redesigned Sole For Functionality - The sole of Cybershoes has been redesigned so people can perform a walking movement in a complete 360-degree radius while being half-way seated as well as facilitating turning movements, as well as the ability to bend over and pick up items from the virtual ground.
Bieglmayer explained, “We can trick the brain by giving the visual of standing at eye level as well as the player moving their legs that make feel as if you’re really walking through the virtual world.”
Bieglmayer was inspired to start his company after seeing the ongoing growth and innovation in the VR industry and sought to innovate his dream of walking through a virtual reality world.
