Virtual Reality Exercise Bike Is Almost Like Going Outside

Virtual Reality Exercise Bike Is Almost Like Going Outside

With 3D movement and Oculus Rift support, Norwegian Activetainment's fitness bike, the "Ebove B\01" (via Prosthetic Knowledge), can help put some fun into the rigorous monotony of training. Install some mechanical fans and it's almost like going for a real ride.

I wouldn't ruin the experience with a generic cycling simulator like the one in the video though — this is perfect for games like Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX, Excite Bike or Crazy Taxi.

Here's the whole concept, showing how it works with an Oculus Rift added.

    Do you have to balance? I am gunna assume it is impossible to topple the bike but knowing my bike riding skills I will just end up riding slanted the entire trip.

    I hate you.

    I expect the Occulus Rift would cause uncomfortable sweatiness and humidity where it is worn.

      Where can we buy something like this? My son is disabled and it would encourage him to exercise and get muscle tone back. He is so thin and it's hard to get him interested in anything because he can't walk properly or do much in real life. He'd love this I just know it.

    I want this, it's great for lazy people like me.. but exercising will be a bit suffocating with the headset on.
