Munich-based startup Icaros GmbH has created a gadget that combines fitness and computer games. The ICAROS setup includes the machine, the controller, the VR headset and it trains its user's muscles through a VR game.
The wireless gaming system stimulates various muscle groups - neck, chest, shoulders, abs, quads, and more - by transforming the gamer into a pilot with the help of a flight simulator. The movement of the aircraft relies on leg and arm movement, or tilting forwards and backwards. The price of the system is €7,900 (about $8,350) and the product is making way for virtual reality gyms of the future. Houston, we have lift-off!
