I am optimizing my own diy WASD shoes idea to use for any wasd input pc game and for any console 's game.
I am tying using complete different sensors from the captoglove and i am getting help from the vendor of the sensor to fine tunining the walk and run inputs.
It is taking some time. They are being great and interested in the use of their software and hardware for the walk in gane idea.
The other diy wasd shoes/set up i have made, works on captogloves sensors and suits/program, but the software of captogloves have some bug and the running is not completely smooth. It works but i want better results for an easier way to run.
I am looking forard to walkovr. We would know more by the end of this month. It should be really cool. For sure it will work for vr games. Not sure yet abour wasd and console’s games. We will see. It seems walkovr should work with wasd input too. I am so excited about it. I backed it.
The katvr has limitations . I can not play any game i want but only games supported by katvr . I can not add my own library of games to test with the katvr. Katvr import only games from steamvr.
Also the cansole’s compatibility is limited for now to just 2 games and katvr does not support at all wasd inputs.
Also with katvr you lose room scale and you are struck on a platform
Cybershoes look cool. I backed it. Though we are stuck on a chair and hence we lose room scale
Walkovr allows us to walk and run in place and also to use our room scale/play area. This is why on the paper it is my favorite locomotion system .
I like my diy shoe idea because it is like the walkovr idea that i want so bad. I want room scale and a solution for locomotion in game for long distance walk when reaching the border of our play area.
I have the Wii fit board , but i do not have tested it because i woukd be stuck on the board. I am spending time on the diy shoes instead.
I have the 3drudder for pc. But as above, i also have not tested it yet. Same as above, i would be stuck on the chair using the 3drudder board.
I hope i can post more in a few days or 1 week about the DIY shoes i am trying to make as soon as i get these new sensors figured out with the vendor’s developing/tech department.
