Black Box VR Machine, an Intense Workout while Enjoying Virtual Reality Gaming

Black Box VR Machine, an Intense Workout while Enjoying Virtual Reality Gaming

Black Box VR machine is an Immersive Virtual Reality Gym and Fitness Experience, that was show-cased at CES 2018. The weight machine was hooked up to a VR rig. Once you put VR headset on and donned a set of motion-tracking wristbands, you will thrust in a fantasy-themed sporting arena.

The machine’s physical handlebars were tracked in VR: once you grab them, you could shoot a big, flaming boulder at your enemies by simply thrusting arms forward. Things are pretty simple in the game, with a horde of enemies charging toward you, you could be easily take them down. However, they were quickly followed by a series of dragons, which required multiple shots to defeat. This encourages towards rapid push forward; you will be focused on the in-game action and you will forget giving yourself an intense physical workout.

The machine’s weight resistance will be increased as you play, as an in-game announcer encourages you to keep firing until you have nothing left.

As a gamer looking to take their fitness more seriously, Black Box feels tailor-made. The machine is meant to be used for 30 minutes at a time, three to five days a week, which is a small, inviting time commitment for folks that think they don’t have the time to work out.

Black Box plans to open a series of boutique gyms that feature its technology, starting with a location in San Francisco in early 2018. The also plans to eventually develop a home version of the workout.

If the Black Box VR service manages to spread widely enough, it could do the same for a whole lot more people who are typically terrified to step foot in a gym.
