CES & Steam Integration & more
we are working to make this happen and it looks good...
@Steam Native Integration
Awesome, awesome news.
Thanks to you guys and your massive support on Kickstarter! Steam answered our calls -> actually it was just one call with the steam developer :)
and now we have first class treadmill support in the Steam Platform. Thanks to Valve, thanks to Joe and his team, Cybershoes will be delivered with native Steam integration.
Here is a preview of the Cybershoes icon "Cybershoes_status_ready" :
We still need to implement some touch events but basically, our functions from Cybermanager are more or less easy to translate into a new environment.
This new feature we are going to present at CES.
@Oculus Home direct integration?
You can still play Oculus games through Steam.
We are trying to get to someone from Oculus through different channels but no success. No answer at all! Seems like we are standing in front of Alcatraz and yelling to concrete walls :(
If you guys have some connections with Oculus developers please spread a word, we want to make native support to Oculus Home!
The Pimax team is so great, they sent us one HMD for testing. Thanks a lot.
@3D printed Cybershoes
Since Kickstarter, we've produced two generations of new prototypes together with our partner DFM companies Tentwelve and Protoskoop. The results are very good.
Position of power supply is work in progress in this prototype
These prototypes are already made out of conductive material. They have passed our electrostatic tests.
We could not fully test the feeling of the shoes as the SLS prints have a higher physical resistance to the carpet than the milled prototypes. But the form and stability is 100% OK. They have the extra claws for better turning and reusable screws so you can change the battery as many of you wished.
We cross our fingers that the 3rd generation of prototypes since Kickstarter will work 100% perfect at CES. If so the next day we can commision the molds.
We are sorry to say but we cannot ship in January. We've decided that shipping untested changes in a product makes no sense for anyone.
* the shell is comprised of two parts now for changing batteries
* extra grip for better turning
* new PCB design for better resistance against electrostatic issues
* software overhaul due to native steam integration
We ordered gas lifts, electronic components and snowboard bindings from China.
We still didn't order mold cause we want to test the final design @CES during 4 days of the show.
@CES Booth Design
