WALKOVR now LIVE
« on: May 18, 2019, 01:57:42 pm »
Hey guys!

I know everyone is hyped out about Rift S and Quest but if you aren't looking for an upgrade in HMD, but maybe an upgrade on how immersive your experience can get, then now is a good time to look into the WalkOVR! Live on kickstarter!

link to the kickstarter is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/walkovr/walkovr-worlds-most-compatible-locomotion-system-f

Here's where you can see what types of platforms and games are supported: https://www.walkovr.com/games/

At this point I'm pretty wary of

1. VR Kickstarters

2. Any third party movement solution.

Tons of VR Kickstarters were fully funded and then never released or still waiting on a release. Meanwhile companies like Oculus and HTC went ahead and provided their own solutions (specifically with motion controllers). Omni-treadmills were popular for a while but never caught on.

If you're really interesting in something like this I would wait until they actually have it for sale and see how the VR community at large reacts to it. There are just SOOOO many smash and grab VR kickstarters...

Thanks for the input, and I'm happy you pointed that out. I might not support any further kickstarters from here on out considering how sketchy the donations were for WalkOVR.
