      Received my unit all well and good. Whilst I'm away with work until early August it's good to see some International backers are receiving their katwalks. Enjoy fellow Katters

      I miss-read email about CFR delivery and have been waiting on further updates! Has anyone actually gone through with this for overseas delivery? I really still want to get hold of one of these (actually wanted to see how it went with view to buying multiple if it met expectations), but have never done a DFR import and sounds like it can lead to all sorts of issues and cost, especially if the product does not show... So would be very interested in anyone else's experience please?

      Is there a list of ports you can ship to?

      Hi. How are you? Everything goes according to schedule? When you plan to send platforms KatWalk to backers on kickstarter?

    8. Kevin Kesler on January 7, 2016

      Happy New Year! Hopefully it's going well for you. Just got my Oculus Rift pre-ordered for the end of march and though I'd check in to see how the KatWalk is coming along.
      I also just had a design-related though. Have you considered using some type of roller balls in the shoes instead of wheels so that the user can strafe?

      @KATVR
      Thank you so much that is great news.
      I am about 6’ 2” and 190 pounds.

      Congratulations on your successful Kickstarter.

    42. Arne Odland on August 22, 2015

      I got an alarming text this morning from my bank asking if I had spent $852.00 at a shoe store. Well, duh, of course not, I'm a guy, I don't care about shoes. Then, I started thinking about who charged all this money for shoes on my card. How could they do that to me? Then I checked my email and saw that KAT WALK was successfully funded and thought about how strange that purchase looks to the bank. They have NO idea how cool these shoes are.

      Grats to the everyone! We made it happen.

    43. Kevin Kesler on August 22, 2015

      I just noticed that the campaign ended. Congratulations! When the survey launches, can I please add a hanging chair? I will also want to add a couple more shoes or the adjustable covers depending on how those progressprogress if that's alright. I can't wait!

    44. KATVR Creator on August 21, 2015

      @Wayne You:
      First of all, please note that the size of the base was decided based on accurate calculating of the horizontal movement range for a user height range from 130cm - 200cm. This means we can make sure that a person with a height of 130 - 200cm will not step out of the base because his body's gravity center is limited within the safe range. Even though sometimes you see the toe cap exceeds the base a little but you will not feel it because it is your heal and shoe sole that touches the ground first while walking, just like walking in real life, and there is no column surrounding you so your toe is safe. The new prototype base is 100cm which is slightly larger than previous prototype 92cm.

      Uskighte on August 21, 2015

      Do you have dimensions on the new prototype? Mostly I'm interested in what the new, wider diameter is on the base plate.

    46. KATVR Creator on August 21, 2015

      @Darron Cox:
      Thank you for your concern.
      Noted you already up your pledge with an extra 3 pairs of shoes, no problem.
      Yes you can still up pledge now or order from the website after kickstarter finishes.
      Hope you enjoy your new toy : )

      Darron Cox on August 20, 2015

      I decided to up my pledge and add an extra 3 pairs of shoes. I hope to order more shoes after the kickstarter. Do i order from the website after the kickstarter finishes? I recently received my 2 X-Rover Gaming Gun controllers from China, so i hope to pair then with the KatVR

    48. KATVR Creator on August 20, 2015

      @Paul:
      Thank you so much for your support!

      BTW, could you pls advise your height and weight as well?

      Paul on August 20, 2015
