VirZOOM now accepting pre-orders
VirZOOM, an upcoming virtual reality system for Oculus, PlayStation VR, and HTC Vive that utilizes a stationary bicycle as a controller is now accepting pre-orders. “Using a bike to move through virtual space provides the illusion of physical movement,” they stated on the official press release, “which combats the cognitive dissonance that usually provokes VR-induced nausea, as well as making VR an active fitness-focused experience rather than a sluggish sedentary one.”
This system is available for $199.95 for those who wish to pre-order the system, and the official retail price will be $249.95. You can check it out in action in the official launch trailer:
All pre-orders will include VirZOOM’s first five games. These games will allow you to do things such as race Formula 1 cars, lasso bandits on horseback, and even sail through the sky on a majestic pegasus while getting a workout. In addition, gamers looking for more will be able to subscribe to VirZOOM Plus for $9.99 per month, which unlocks fitness data tracking (including heart rate monitoring, calories, distance over time, and more) as well as regular new content.
