Those who want to go on an epic VR adventure without leaving their swivel chairs will be pampered for you – Cybershoes, a VR accessory that allows you to walk around the scene in a virtual reality world, is now ready to deliver it Oculus Quest 2-compatible version.
Currently for sale in Indiegogo as part of the continuation of a successful crowdfunding campaign At $ 285 (£ 205 / $ 369) at an early bird price ($ 399 / £ 290 / $ 520) at the normal price, the equipment is now ready for players and will be delivered this month.
Cybershoes have straps on the player’s shoes on a slippery sole that follows movement as you slide the surface. Sitting in a swivel chair (not standing, for fear of crushing your shoes), you can slide your feet around and move in a way that simulates walking without hitting the limits of your play space. The new Oculus Quest package includes additional Bluetooth tracking, which also allows shoes to wirelessly track the location of the wireless headset and continue working with connected PC VR installations.
We tried An early version of Cybershoes back to CES 2019, and they were impressed with how the accessory takes smart, how the player can move in VR mode.
If you’re interested in picking up a pair, the Indiegogo campaign has a few days left so you can pick it up at an early price for an early bird and ends May 10th. When the Indiegogo campaign ends, you can pick up the accessory at Cybershoes.com and resellers including Amazon (at least in the United States).
Cybershoes sits in an interesting niche for VR gamers – especially this new version supports wireless Oculus Quest and Oculus Quest 2. It may seem counter-intuitive to root the player in place to simulate movement when they have an unconnected headset, but for those with a smaller game space, this could allow them to move more freely than before.
Games with higher settings, such as Skyrim’s VR versions, Fallout 4, and No Man’s Sky, can really benefit – players can travel around the world endlessly in the physical world by resorting to teleportation for motion control and all while reducing motion sickness. For those who enjoy open world VR games, Cybershoes may be a must-have option – if the company still supports a wide range of VR games.
