CES 2015: 3DRudder takes your VR controller out of your hands, to go on your feet

A less taxing alternative to all the Oculus VR gear out there, perhaps?
CES 2015: 3DRudder takes your VR controller out of your hands, to go on your fee

Rather than move a mouse around or, heaven forbid, actually walk around while viewing a 3D environment, what about just being in your seat? 3DRunner is a funny-looking little devicee that is basically a slightly elevated circular platform for you to put your feet on.

It's ingenius, really. It's like using your feet without actually having to get up. This leaves your hands free for very important things like drinking your water without spilling it or fending off virtual monsters.

A more immersive take on 3D design

3DRunner isn't quite geared towards gaming just yet- more like it was created so that 3D programmers using Maya or Zbrush could navigate the UI with their feet, while their hands were left free to do other things within the 3D environs.

At present, the device still has some finetuning to do before it would make a great companion when playing, oh Temple Run VR.

The device is currently trying to raise funds on Indiegogo and has so far managed US$15,540 (RM54,985) out of a lofty US$50,000 goal.

US$130 gets you a standard edition kit on Indiegogo, though you'll need to pay an extra US$20 for shipping.
