3dRudder, a device that allows us to move around virtual worlds, is already available for € 179, but if we buy it we can already take advantage of a discount of € 29.59.
Stanislas Chesnais, CEO of 3dRudder, has been working on his device since 2014. A controller with 4 axes for our feet that allows us to scroll through the applications while we remain seated, using for this the inclination and rotation that our feet exert on the device. The controller was awarded a virtual reality innovation award at CES 2016, and has received two nominations for CES 2017.
Since April of this year they have been sending pre-production units to the developers, and finally they have decided to officially launch the product and start its distribution to the public. 3dRudder is not only a controller for our feet that we can use in virtual reality or traditional video games, but it also has more uses, such as a 3d mouse for CAD design, mouse for people with disabilities, controller for drones or industrial machinery.
3dRudder is a different approach to solving locomotion in virtual reality, which allows us to free our hands from coordinating displacement, but forces us to be seated. It is compatible with any application that uses a joystick, gamepad or keyboard, and there are plans to integrate it with Microsoft and Sony consoles. At the moment we can buy it at a discount for € 149.41, shipping costs included, since once the promotion ends its price will be € 179.
