A new wireless controller that allows us to free our hands from directional movement.
SprintR LLC it is a company based in Maryland (USA) that launches today to the market SprintR VR, a different proposal for those who want to use one of their feet to control locomotion in virtual reality. The peripheral can be used both sitting and standing with PC and mobile platform viewers, and is compatible with any game or application that supports stick motion (gamepad).
SprintR solves the problem that VR has been causing for 5 years and that no one hesitates to condemn. It’s that simple. You put the SprintR VR on the ground in front of you, and you’re already walking in VR with your hands completely free. No more joystick to move around, or teleport crazy while trying to play normally. SprintR puts virtual movement where it belongs, on your feet, ” says Peter Kojesta, founder of SprintR LLC.
Indeed, it is essentially an analog foot joystick. This device, which connects wirelessly, includes vibration and functions that allow us to jump by pressing a central button, as well as make lateral movements and turns, in addition to moving forward and backward leaving the hands for other more intuitive and appropriate tasks.
SprintR VR is available in the official store for a price of $ 149.
