The walking revolution in VR.  Resembling the EKTO ONE roller skates significantly increases the immersion

Getting around is one of the biggest obstacles in virtual reality today. After all, it is difficult to ensure that the player in his living room can move exactly the same distances as in games. That is why Ekto VR has developed special EKTO ONE shoes that allow VR players to walk in place while traversing virtual space.

Walking in VR can take you to a new level with EKTO ONE

The operation of the EKTO ONE is based on a series of motorized wheels on the soles that rotate in the opposite direction to the user’s movement. Such a “simple” solution allows the user to walk in a place like on a … treadmill, giving him the feeling that he is moving forward. This, in combination with VR sets, would completely change the fun in games of this type, going beyond the traditional combination of controllers in the hands and a screen in front of the eyes.

The problem is that EKTO ONE could use some kind of diet, because looking at the size of this “foot controller”, long playing with such platforms on the feet can start to tire. Fortunately, there are chances for this, because at the moment these shoes are in the prototype phase and may prove to be crucial for the development of metaverse projects, the success of which will largely depend on immersion. This can be additionally enriched by controllers with haptic functions, or even whole vests imitating forces affecting the character.
