Nyko is typically most recognized for their charging solutions available for both the Xbox and PlayStation. At this year’s E3, the debut of their VR accessories really caught our eye. These accessories augment the overall experience that might hinder some gamers from actually dipping their feet into virtual reality.
Nyko’s VR Guardian provides a boundary system that allows users to create their own personal safe space. The VR Guardian would be perfect for those who don’t wish to bump into their furniture or their TV. On the other hand, there may be others that get motion sickness while using a VR headset. For those folks there is the VR Motion Band—a band based on acupressure that is designed to reduce the feelings of nausea, dizziness, and headaches.
We spent a lot of time in the product research and development phase identifying the key issues facing gamers with VR. These new products address nausea and call for improved safety, especially with respect to not-so-imaginary walls and furniture, while playing in a virtual world.

On the console front, the Charge Block Solo and Duo lines allow gamers the ability to create a customized charging solution for their Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. Additionally, Nyko will release versions of the Intercooler Grip and SpeakerCom for both consoles.
