‘VORTEX’ VR SHOES APPEALS FOR $50K ON INDIEGOGO

Led by Jamie Hyneman, a developer that once strapped a cordless drill to a pair of roller skates to boost speed, an IndieGogo campaign has been launched to build VR shoes for essentially walking in place. The team seeks $50,000 to make the seventh generation prototype of the shoes without any guarantee of producing a viable consumer product. However, to entice supporters to go the extra mile for this campaign, the team is offering some different survival kits dubbed “The Hyneman.” The prototype is expected to be Bluetooth compatible and feature high-torque brushless motors, force sensors, and infrared sensors for obstacle detection.
