Shoes that allow gamers to walk and run in VR coming to major retailers like Amazon soon
VIENNA and SAN FRANCISCO – May. 3, 2021 – Cybershoes, the world’s first accessory for walking and running in VR, today announced that it’s Indiegogo campaign will conclude on May 10. VR enthusiasts now have one week left to get the best pre-order price for the latest Cybershoes wireless model, compatible with Oculus Quest and Quest 2. Cybershoes for Oculus Quest units will ship to all backers in May.
This campaign completes two rounds of crowdfunding for the Quest edition, supported by 623 backers raising $138,454, via both Indiegogo and Kickstarter. “We are very happy to see that 38% of users of Cybershoes for wired headsets have upgraded to the Quest version” said Michael Bieglmayer, CEO of Cybershoes.
“It’s been a long period of preparation and production for us, and we are now ready to bring Cybershoes for Oculus Quest to the world,” Michael continued. “We’re thankful for the backers who have supported us throughout our crowdfunding campaigns and thrilled that they will soon get to experience walking and running in their wireless Oculus Quest and Quest 2 headsets!”
After May 10, customers will be able to pre order Cybershoes for Quest directly from Cybershoes.com. In addition, the VR locomotion accessory will soon launch on Amazon for U.S. customers, along with the integration of new Oculus Quest games that will work natively with Cybershoes.
Connecting wirelessly via the CyQuest Bluetooth receiver, Cybershoes for Quest translates native body motion into in-game locomotion. Natural movements help address one of the biggest complaints about VR, motion sickness, while increasing immersion, physical activity, and enjoyment. With natively integrated games, like Arizona Sunshine in partnership with Vertigo Games, setup is as simple as putting on Cybershoes, starting up the headset, and selecting the in-game Cybershoes locomotion option.
