VR Focus is a well-known independent media among the VR community. Thanks to its accurate and in-depth reviews on absolutely EVERYTHING related to virtual reality, it kind of became a reference among the VR community. The media covers various subjects, from games and peripherals to new technology events. The website is a comprehensive source of informations for gamers and we’re grateful that they kept following our progression in the gaming industry. Now it’s time to return the favor!
With a flat top for your feet and a curved bottom, the 3dRudder can perform any number of actions. If you’ve ever used sports equipment like a snowboard, surfboard or skateboard, some of the actions will seem very natural and familiar.
The purpose of its design is to solve several problems in VR related to movement. Firstly there’s nausea. VR users usually have to revert to teleportation options and snap rotation in video games that require a lot of wandering around. 3dRudder helps to solve this, as you are telling your feet to move in a certain direction even without walking.
Secondly, because 3dRudder has to be used seated, it allows movement in much more confined areas – great for those that don’t have room-scale space. This is especially pertinent when it comes to PlayStation VR, as the whole system – and most of the video games – are designed around a seated experience.
VR Singe Rhétorik is a player based in the South of France. He regularly provides his community with funny gaming reviews (that he calls “DiscoVR”) exclusively on PlayStation VR games. In the following video, he tested The Wizards – Enhanced Edition. He particularly appreciated the easiness with which he was able to shoot and step back at the same time (16.00min). Unless you are a Frenchy, don’t forget to activate the subtitles!
This guy describes himself as a “hardcore gamer” and that was enough to trigger our interest. Result? You should definitely watch him play the multiplayer shooter Honor and Duty: D-Day with the 3dRudder. You can either watch the full video, that is a bit long but truly entertaining, or start at 6.50min for a special focus on the device.

We present you VR4Player : one of the most famous French independent media regarding virtual reality. These guys are real specialists! Their Youtube channel covers all the news involving the best PSVR game releases and hardwares. After testing the 3dRudder foot controller, they decided to make a full documentary on the 3dRudder. The documentary, that you can discover here (again, don’t forget to put translation!), presents the product with an exclusive insight from the 3dRudder team. Their opinion on the 3dRudder:
“If you move with your feet, you finally no longer need directional wheels on your PS Move and that’s good, because we don’t have any! We can even say that it seems even more ergonomic. We use our feet to move and our hands to grasp elements in the virtual world.”
Again : if you haven’t already, TRY IT! You’ll understand how much the device offers a natural (and logic) way of playing in VR.
