Get In Shape with OnShape – The VR Game for Home Aerobics

The VR game promotes fitness at home in a fun, fast paced and immersive environment.

 

This summer you will have no excuse for not exercising. You don’t have to go to the gym or invest in expensive equipment. Instead, you only have to put on your headset and start the OnShape VR game. Once in the game, you will have to dodge obstacles and recreate certain poses. All of this accompanied by some fast paced beats.

Who Is the Team Behind OnShape VR Game?

Actually, at the beginning, the OnShape VR game was for internal use. The team created the game to help them exercise during breaks. They found it so fun and useful, that they decided to release it to the public.

So, they polished and improved the game and now they are ready to launch it.

What Can Players Do in OnShape?

The way Odders Lab imagined it, the VR game challenges players to move at a fast pace through the virtual space and avoid obstacles. Sometimes they have to jump, sidestep or crouch. Along the journey, they can catch power-ups to refill the energy.

All the action takes place with music, which determines the pace of the run. Also, the developers hired professional choreographers for the movements which the players must perform.

A Game for Anyone
