About

The  problem of movement in Virtual Reality has been so far, solved by extremely expensive and badly designed treadmills which were dead ends until now! It’s true that running wasn’t really that exciting before VR, and it’s still not something I am personally pushing to do that much of in VR. With Weightless VR (Patent Pending) we wish to offer a more affordable, safer and overall more fun way to play games in VR. 

Based on a system used by stunt doubles in movie production, think more crouching tiger hidden dragon. Our system will keep the player in their play area all while allowing them to have the most fun possible. By having full freedom of motion and the support bungees, a player can safely lean back and dodge bullets like Neo, or dive forward into Virtual water and start freely swimming. Players can now dive to hit balls or catch virtual objects, all while knowing the bungees will bring them safely back to center. You might even dance or fight freely with another avatar.


Our Bungee system is evolving and we wish to take it all the way to the future of Virtual Reality E-Sports. We are currently working on a Pro level system which allows the same freedom as the current system, all while allowing the user the ability to do front and backflips all while still having weightlessness with the freedom to spin in 360 degrees infinitely. 


Our system if tweaked can be used with current virtual reality treadmills, allowing the weightlessness to aid walking and keep the user in place.


With your help we can push the limits of Virtual Reality, because we don't want VR to be lifelike. We want VR to be dreamlike.


Product Details:

- Can be installed on ceilings from 7ft - 15ft. Even higher for places like convention centers if necassary.

- The ultimate experience when using foot trackers

- I am using a 10ft HDMI extension, 10ft Usb extension and power extension to raise the headset wires above my head onto the ceiling.

- This system works seamlessly with VR spatial tracking system, so game developers don't need to change anything to make our system work.

- The system can just be unhooked from the small ceiling mount when not in use, it is small enough to store in a drawer when not using it.

- Takes up no floor space at all when not in use.

- The ceiling mount is a circular black 6 inch plate with two intersecting rings protruding. It is mounted using a stud finder to a support beam using 2 heavy duty bolts. for exposed ceiling or beams there is a support strap that can be wrapped around it.

- My play area in the video is 12ft by 12ft, but can be any size as long as you stay within the limits you've set yourself within your system. But the more space you have, the more fun you will have. 

- The system makes almost no noise, foot noise is greatly reduced also because the bungees take a majority of your body weight off of them.

- A great solution for people with disabilities or handicaps using Virtual Reality. 

Risks and challenges

Nothing like this has been done before with this industry. Injuries will be possible if a player doesn't clear the play area correctly, bumping into the corner of a table or wall is possible if you do not follow the in game boundaries you set for the VR system. As is an issue with any VR application.
