- This guy made a working VR shoes. Allowing you to walk in the game but stay in the same spot in real life. He's playing No Man's Sky here.
I can finally do the moonwalk.
Very cool invention.ID: gy3bdmd
First thought: Annie are you ok?
Second thought: Now you too can be reposted over and over to /nextfuckinglevelID: gy3dn3t
I legitimately thought this was anpost until i realized it wasID: gy3cz11
Should rename that sub to /
I wanna see a jet pack vr inventionID: gy3a95l
Or diving suit to play Subnautica.ID: gy3bmx9
With real diving tanks, just think about the immersion when you run out of air..ID: gy3bi9g
Mandatory Mesmer add on included.

Seeing these VR systems brings to mind all those old videos/pictures of early attempts at air travel.
Eventually someone's going to knock this out of the park, but this looks hilarious.ID: gy39vbt
Lol like planes with like 6 wings stacked on top of each otherID: gy3bbjn
Those forefathers of yesteryear always pushing the aeronautical boundaries, great innovators like Xzibit Wright stacking airfoils in airfoils so you can fly while you fly!ID: gy3pz3u
Try 9 wingsID: gy3f20l
Wow. This is actually a great comparison!
That's awesome! All you need is a fkn cargo hook in your ceilingID: gy34t0c
I mean... we never use the sex swing in my bedroom anymore...ID: gy362ym
Improvise, adapt, overcome.ID: gy3763a
what if...all those how to diy hanging a a swing from the ceiling requests were actually gamers doing VR instead of sex swings?ID: gy39xmr
Still way less space than other solutionsID: gy3cn4t
1) Don't buy your fkn cargo hook from Harbor Freight
2) Be sure it's mounted to a ceiling joist.ID: gy3aa2o
If you think about it seriously, any person who can buy an expensive VR set must be ready to spend a little extra just to install a cargo hook.ID: gy3amsq
It's not exactly difficult or expensive...
How are we doing for VR movement like this, will anything come to market at a reasonable price in the next 5-10 years?ID: gy33ydd
From what I have seen, there are very few realistic options. The cheapest solution is slippery shoes in a dish. There is also the Infinadeck which I cant imagine will ever sell for regular gamer levels of "reasonable".ID: gy39ce2
Infinideck needs a better promotional video.ID: gy382qt
That looks like a lot of money to break my hand on those bars with my flailing.
I could break my hand for much cheaper, but it wouldn't be as immersive.ID: gy39abu
I tried the slippery shoes in a dish setup, horribly awkward and uncomfortable, played for about 10 minutes on a setup in vegas and couldn't wait to get out
Best VR I've played had an entire gym wired up to match the game area so you could walk around the whole room, but that's obviously not useful for playing at home. I'm losing hope there will be any real solution for realistic feeling VR controls without direct brain interfaceID: gy39jsv
Dunno man, I'm afraid I'll have arthritis when these become good enough and not be able to enjoy them 🙁
"No mom I'm not just sitting here and playing video games! I'm also exercising! Come see for yourselves"
imagine how much exercise gamers will be gettinID: gy37rdt
Flexing budging muscles “why yes I do play VR games, how could you tell?”ID: gy3f0xe
Wasn’t this literally a plot point of the Ready Player One novel?ID: gy3bvi6
I actually have a friend who's lost a significant amount of weight since he got the steam VR and started playing beat saber
Oh wow, thanks for showing my content. If anyone is interested in following me (source) -
Discord -ID: gy3wf15
Also, this is open-source. Feel free to take my work and improve on it or do whatever you want with it.ID: gy47mcy
I appreciate your willingness to share, but seriously, put an open license on it instead.
Free to improve and play with. You get paid if someone starts using it commercially. Cause this looks marketable with a few minor improvements.ID: gy3oqph
Very imaginative! I'm curious when did you make this video? The UI in NMS is olderID: gy3svcv
Thanks. It's this video from 2 months ago.
Walks like a blursed RoboCop
And Jesus wept! For there were no more worlds to conquer.ID: gy3bvt1
I was so hoping that someone would be saying this lolID: gy3bxyu
Worlds within worlds!ID: gy3h16m
This is the future of scrolling!
Ready player one here we come.ID: gy35u65
I thought the same thing, and ya know what fuck it let's do this
his channel if anyone was wondering, he does great work.
Maybe this would help with motion sicknessID: gy36aag
I found that walking in place helped with my motion sickness when I first got my index, so I imagine this would do the same (obviously it varies from person to person)ID: gy397y1
I should try that. I can only manage an hour in Half-Life Alyx before I want to throw up.
Looks uncomfortable as hell
Talk about a fucking workout though, my lord. No man's sky is fucking colossal
