Widerun Virtual Reality Bike Trainer Woos VR Developers
Monday, March 23, 2015
Widerun is a smart bike trainer connecting users to virtual reality head mounted displays. Hosting a current Kickstarter campaign, Widerun is launching with support for both the Oculus RIFT and mobile VR display systems. Widerun launched on March 18th, reaching 20% of the goal in the first 24 hours, making it to a Kickstarter Staff Pick. The Kickstarter goal is set to £30,000 and the Widerun trainer will be sold for £300 at the full price.
Users ride with Widerun to train indoors with the feeling of an outdoor ride and enjoy interactive riding experiences. Widerun delivers a fully responsive, immersive biking experience in virtual 3D worlds with interactive, game-like experiences for training and fitness.
Setup of Widerun is like other cycle trainers - connect the Widerun trainer to the rear wheel of a user’s bike and set up the steering component then access the Widerun app or partner VR developer apps to load experiences and start a ride.
The Kickstarter campaign is focusing on delivering the first set of Widerun cycle trainers. The company is also looking to engage fitness and VR developers with the opportunity to create a broad range of experiences.
