Runtastic for Oculus VR®: 7-Minute Workout & More in Virtual Reality
Virtual reality is a pretty amazing technological feat and an incredibly fun world to play around in… But, many might be asking themselves – how can I use VR to improve and optimize my life? Look no further than your health and fitness efforts!
The team at Runtastic has been hard, and quietly, at work for several months so that a selection of our most popular strength & toning workouts can be executed with the use of Oculus Rift. These workouts include the 7-Minute Workout, and will later include additional butt and leg workouts, six pack exercises, yoga routines and more. Users can also view Runtastic videos within the realm of VR, experiencing the sound and visuals like never before.
“We’re already testing how we can integrate even more activity types and there’s really no limit. In 2015, we could see Runtastic and Oculus engaging gym fans, runners, bikers and more. I’m personally and professionally eager to see what we come up with next!” said Florian Gschwandtner, Runtastic CEO and Co-Founder.
For those hoping to try out this incredible new technology (that has even Apple buzzing), Runtastic will be showcasing the VR experience at CES in Las Vegas, Nevada. As mentioned above, our team will be at Booth #74107 in Tech West (in The Venetian (3355 S Las Vegas Blvd.), near the Venetian Ballroom) from January 6-9 and we’re eager to have you give it a try! It will also be the first time for many of you to come play around with Runtastic Orbit for the first time – we can’t wait to see you!
