Exis Interactive, the company that had credits with major games such as Bioshock Infinite, Xcom, and World of Tanks, have revealed their Virtual Reality controller known as the SprintR.
Instead of being just an over-the-head controller like the Oculus Rift, SprintR will be a footpad that will allow players to walk, run, and jump in VR in combination with a gamepad, or hand sensing technology. Founder of Exis Peter Kojesta had this to say…
“SprintR is all about easy, natural movement in VR. On one hand you have VR controllers that require an entire room cleared of furniture, or massive treadmills that require a harness and special shoes, and on the other hand you have SprintR, which sits at your feet and makes movement simple.”
The SprintR is scheduled for release in early 2016.
