Nyko’s VR Accessories Debut
VR’s unparalleled immersion is incredible, but when a virtual space starts to feel like reality and the boundaries of your world feel entirely arbitrary, it can also be hazardous. VR Guardian is a complete VR boundary system that lets users designate a “safe zone” for floor-scale gameplay, using sensors and wristbands to alert you before you trip over a couch or run into a wall. The VR Guardian uses four Bluetooth sensors to form a user-defined grid. The sensors are paired with two adjustable wristbands that vibrate and alert the user when they begin to encroach on the designated boundary. When not in use, the sensors and wristbands can be neatly stacked together for easy storage and simultaneous charging.
VR Guardian is compatible with all VR systems, and will begin shipping in the 2016 holiday season for an MSRP of $99.99.
VR Motion Band
Designed to address the unfortunate pesky side effects of prolonged VR headwear use, the VR Motion Bands use an acupressure bead to stimulate the anterior surface of the forearm (a key pressure point) on both wrists to potentially reduce nausea, dizziness, and headaches. By applying pressure on this point, the wristbands help release muscular tension and stress, promote the circulation of blood, and enable the body to relax.
The VR Motion Band is an adjustable one-size fits all band for an MSRP of $9.99 and is expected to ship in the 2016 holiday season.
