Did it ever occur to you that you can find something so entertaining, fulfilling and exciting that can make you feel better at least for a while without feeling any pain?Well my friends prepare for the power of the virtual love.As you fly over the Swiss countryside or over the buildings of downtown San Francisco the device’s flaps become your “wings.” Thanks to its hydraulic mechanism, the platform tips forward when you dive in the virtual world, matching the angle of your “bird” body.
It is now available for pre-orders to be shipped in Q3 of 2016.
If you want to just demo the bike for an event, you can rent it temporarily.
We have found at least two stationary bikes that will work well for this set up: – The Ebove B\01 by Activetainment was designed to be natively compatible with VR technology.
It’s capable of responding to whatever you’re doing in virtual reality, tilting forward, backward and to the side.
In general, you need three things to go extreme mountain biking without leaving the comfort of your living room.
You need a stationary bike, hopefully one that can communicate with your VR software; a high-end VR headset (and associated hardware), which at the moment means the Oculus Rift, and an extreme mountain biking app.
You hop on a stationary bicycle while wearing a VR headset that simulates uphill or downhill mountain biking.
Now, you can’t quite go out and get this in a ready-made package… Although some people managed to experience VR biking, either at expos or by procuring the different pieces themselves.
– Widerun is another app that replicates real-life urban and off-road cycling in VR.
It works best with Oculus Rift, and is capable of connecting to your bike as a controller.
The whole thing is meant to recreate the experience of flight as realistically as possible by engaging your whole body.
