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.

With real diving tanks, just think about the immersion when you run out of air..

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.

Lol like planes with like 6 wings stacked on top of each other

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 wings

ID: gy3f20l

Wow. This is actually a great comparison!

That's awesome! All you need is a fkn cargo hook in your ceiling

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 solutions

ID: 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 interface

Dunno man, I'm afraid I'll have arthritis when these become good enough and not be able to enjoy them 🙁

Wasn’t this literally a plot point of the Ready Player One novel?

I actually have a friend who's lost a significant amount of weight since he got the steam VR and started playing beat saber

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 older

ID: gy3svcv

Thanks. It's this video from 2 months ago.

Maybe this would help with motion sickness

ID: 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.
