KICKSTARTER Widerun – The first full immersive VR biking experience

The Tour de France is comming! And if you are a cycling and VR enthousiast, your dreams may come true with the first full immersive VR biking experience. Widerun is the first bike trainer you connect to Oculus Rift. Ride in full immersive VR worlds, from SF to the Alps, like being there!

Widerun is the first fully interactive bike trainer specifically designed to deliver engaging fitness sessions through VR headsets and external screens. It delivers a responsive, immersive, biking experience with unlimited virtual 3D worlds featuring games and bike tracks all designed to create exciting and challenging fitness sessions.

The current prototype contains all main functionalities and it works pretty well. The following pictures show the current status and set up of the Widerun bike trainer and steering component.

Robbert As some of you may know, I have been suffering from the aftermath of a traffic accident, a severe case of COVID-19, and a transient ischemic attack (TIA). These events have taken a toll on my physical and mental well-being, and I can no longer keep up with the demands of running a VR website and channel. I want to thank you all for your support and feedback over the years. You have been an amazing community and I have enjoyed sharing my passion for VR and gaming with you. I hope you will continue to enjoy VR and explore its possibilities. I will leave the website and channel online for now, so you can still access the content I have created. However, I will not be posting any new blogs, videos, or news. I hope you understand and respect my choice.
