Cybershoes let you walk, run and jump using your real world feet. However, if you prefer not to swing your legs, VRGO MINI by UK-based VRGO will let you do the same minus the leg swinging. Building upon the company’s VRGO Chair, VRGO MINI is the compact iteration of the original introduced in 2015.
Designed for standalone VR headset and PC connected VR headset, VRGO MINI lets you move in the VR world seated. To move in the desired direction, all you have to do is to lean in the direction. Easy peasy. The best part is, it can be placed on virtually any type of chair and you are good to go. That means you can practically VR game anywhere, although no one actually VR anywhere. But you get the idea.
Key features include haptic feedback for added immersion, customizable sensitivity, native controller settings within the Steam platform, colored cushion, and more important for those who play VR games often, it offers posture and core strength engagement for low-impact gaming experience.
VRGO MINI VR Locomotion and Haptics will play well with most VR headsets including Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Oculus GO, HTC Vive/Pro, Pimax, Valve Index and Microsoft Mixed Reality.
