The Oculus Quest-compatible version of Cybershoes, the VR locomotion peripheral, was successfully funded on Kickstarter late last year, and has been available direct from the creators for a few months now. The company has now made Cybershoes for Quest available through Amazon US though, and has shaved a few bucks off the price too.

Cybershoes present a pretty unconventional locomotion method for VR users. Instead of using stick-based locomotion, teleportation, or standing up and sliding around the slick parabolic base of a VR treadmill, Cybershoes offers a seated experience that requires the user to slide a pair of shoe-mounted devices forward and backward to simulate walking or running in-game. The idea is to give you a physical way of inputting virtual locomotion, which in turn helps battle motion sickness. It’s a weird concept, but it actually works.

Now the Vienna-based creators have released their latest Cybershoes wireless model for $350 on Amazon US, which supports Oculus Quest, Quest 2, and SteamVR headsets. When purchased direct from Cybershoes, the whole package costs $455.

Inside the box is a pair of Cybershoes (batteries included), a swivel-style Cyberchair, a 60″ round carpet, a wireless receiver, an AC Adapter, and all of the required cables. Of course, the package doesn’t include a VR headset.

At the time of this writing, Cybershoes for Quest only supports a handful of native Quest titles, including Arizona Sunshine, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, MYST, In Death Unchained, The Wizards Dark Times, VRChat, Journey of the Gods, and a few more.

The company says full integration and optimization for other titles is coming soon though, which will include Ancient Dungeon, RTCWQuest, a VR mod of the classic Return To Castle Wolfenstein, and QuestZDoom, a mod that brings classic Doom games like Ultimate Doom and Doom64 to Quest.

The device is also said to support for 60+ PC VR titles via SteamVR. You can check out the company’s Google Spreadsheet of compatible and tested PC VR titles here.

    Where I am pleased to see the continued success of Cybershoes, I have to admit a little dissapointment that its advertised on Amazon with a 7-12 day estimated delivery, before as an Indigogo backer, I have even got shipping details, or a fixed date for shipping.

      I generally gain almost $23,000-$24,000 every month on the net. I ended up losing my job after working for the same business enterprise for a long period. I wanted trustworthy income. I was not researching for the “get rich overnight” home programs you can see all over the net. Those all of them are kind of ponzi kind of multi level marketing schemes in which you have to first get interested customers and then sell something to friends or relatives or anybody to make sure they will be in your team. Working over the internet has many positive points like I am always home with the little ones and also enjoy lots of free time with my family members in various beautiful beaches of the world.
