    VRGO - Moving in VR

    Kickstarter that was launched a few days ago offering a new way to move through VR w/o typical analog stick or a massive setup. I thought it was quite interesting and may end up getting one depending on their support for Playstation VR. Well, unless I go the Oculus route (unlikely), then I'd probably be more than likely to pick one up (providing latter reviews showing it helps with immersion.)

    That's a pretty ingenious idea but it seems like it would hurt/get tiring to sit on with no back support and such a small surface area. What's the price point for one of these?

    Looks pretty good! Glad they got a Kickstarter going, I can see this going far.

    I like the concept of the idea, I don't like the prototype though. I can see it being very tedious to do small movements when you're shifting your weight to do it. As well as others have said having no back support will cause serious back pain sat in that position for any extended periods of time.

    Perhaps if they come up with a better prototype I'd consider backing them too.

    I've always been a skeptic of VR movement, I feel like it will always be a novelty that quickly wears off in favor of typical joystick minimal effort controls.

    Still this isn't a bad solution, I can imagine my ass getting sore from shifting my weight around so min though, and my back getting tight from leaning every which way without a back rest

    I would definitely not purchase the first generation of this product, but hey, it's progress.
