MythBuster’s Jamie Hyneman Launches IndieGogo to Build VR Shoes that Act Like Mini Treadmills

Dubbed ‘Vortrex’, the VR shoes were first conceived when Hyneman strapped cordless drills to a pair of roller skates to see if he could speed up the normal skating pace. Using what he learned combined with a long history as a special effects supervisor, the new VR shoes are less about moving the user forward like a roller skate and more about keeping the user immobile like on a treadmill. 

The campaign aims to offer a VR walking experience that crucially reduces the pain points of owning an omnidirectional treadmill like Virtuix Omni or Kat VR; hefty pieces of kit that require a dedicated space.

My youngest son (8) made a lego set all by himself, complete with instructions. It’s a “Scientist Workplace” set, he loves science. Dear @LEGO_Group @LEGOIdeas watch out for his CV in 10 years time :) There is a lot of competition but I’m pretty sure he is your number 1 fan. https://t.co/mku1oTT6wL

I watched that Valerian movie, more than anything to work out why it was a flop. I loved the 5th element, and Valerian is indeed a great film with the same sci-fi fashion-show feel… but… one word. Eyebrows. Totally ruined it for me. https://t.co/OVy3I4An1p
