Go beyond the headset with these pieces of VR tech

What about your feet? Don’t worry, 3DRudder has them covered. It’s a pressure-sensitive controller that’s a bit like a balance board. Strangely, you use it sitting down, so it’s not like walking around virtual environments – for that you’ll need the Virtuix Omni – but more like riding a hoverboard. But it brings the feet into play, which will help immerse you in the game. Push forward with your toes, and you move forward. Dig your heels in, and you move backwards. Rotate it either way and you turn. It should work with any game that can use a gamepad, so compatibility shouldn’t be an issue. Look out for it in March.
