VR Cybershoes Are A Major Attraction At CES – 2019

Cybershoes Allow you to Run and Walkthrough A Virtual Reality Environment

LAS VEGAS – CES – 2019, Cybershoes, the first company to develop virtual reality shoes is a major attraction at CES 2019, if you are attending the event, you shouldn’t miss a lifetime experience of walking and run around a virtual reality environment. After a great funding success at Kickstarter, the company is back with a new resigned prototype of Cybershoe VR accessory .

The product was first heard of in October 2018, when they started with their funding campaign at Kickstarter, within a matter of two hours they received their goal with more a thousand backers investing in their innovative product.

If you want a demo you can visit them at LVCC, South Hall 1, Booth #21631. For the demo you can choose between two available options, Doom VFR and Skyrim VR.

How does it work?

The Cybershoes accessory is strapped around your feet, and you have to sit on a swivel bar stool to start with your VR experience. All your VR movements are controlled by your natural physical movements.

The new prototype has better grip and smoother movements as compared with their earlier version. Although only two options are available at the CES event, these VR shoes are compatible and work perfectly with most of the VR games. They work smoothly with platforms like HTC Vive, SteamVR, Pimax, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality.

"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."

The main feature of these products includes:

The new Cubershoes are very affordable but need an existing VR setup for integration.

Setup is quite easy, simply strap them on your feet, sit on a compatible swivel seat, and are good to go. The player’s vision is not bound with the cybershoes, so a user can see all VR surrounding while he/she performs actions like bend, duck, etc.

It offers new possibilities to be used as an accessory for training programs, site walkthroughs, and many other things.

As you are moving physically while inside a VR environment, it also helps in burning some calories.
