Vr Fitness


Dozens of fitness games are already available in online GAME markets and app stores, each striving to make getting off of your couch and working up sweat more fun than jogging or gym. More fun means more workouts, which means fewer broken New Years resolutions and fewer inches on waistlines. Whats not to like? That may sound too good to be true, but research says VR can play those kinds of healthy mind tricks. That is why serious medical researchers are turning to VR for a litany of therapeutic uses, including treating Post Traumatic Stress, maintaining mental acuity for seniors and managing pain for burn victims. Reading that analysis was exactly why the founders of Black Box VR went all in on developing what would be the first VR Fitness GAME built around resistance training rather than aerobics. We all know that athletes have this magic that they can push through pain, adversity, to make it to the next level, Black Box VR cofounder Preston Lewis say. They have this mental grit. When you work out on VR, 80 percent of your brain is dedicated to visual pathways. If the stimulus is strong enough, it is easier to override that sense of pain. The active nature of Virtual Reality means that any VR GAME, not just fitness games, offer some exercise value. San Francisco State Universitys Kinesiology Department launched VR Health Institute, which is developing methods to test and rate games based on how many calories players burn in session. Aaron Stanton, Silicon Valley angel investor and startup advisor with a focus on Virtual and augmented Reality, is involved with VR Health Institute. He said players in the fitness industry will soon engage in an arms race for VR Fitness market share. In five years, there wo be a gym in the US that doesnt have some component of Virtual or augmented reality, Stanton say. Dozens of aerobic-base Virtual Reality Fitness games are already available on Virtual Reality platforms such as HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Players use wands or gloves to execute calorie-burning actions, such as throwing punches, swinging swords or firing bows in a variety of games. But no GAME on the market replicates weightlifting workout. Black Box VR hops to change that. The company plans to open its own boutique gyms, starting this year with a pilot gym in San Francisco. Users will step into personal room Black Box where they will put on HTC Vive VR headset and calibrate various cable machines to their height and strength. The system will remember users ' workout history and calibrate various exercises to provide appropriate resistance, which will gradually increase with users fitness. In-GAME trainers will coach players through exercise techniques to ensure effectiveness and safety. If player complete only, say, six of 12 reps, resulting attack will be as strong.
