Fitbit Ionic charging stand

I asked a friend to print one of these about 1.5 years ago and I’m still waiting, so I decided to print it myself! It turned out really well.

SuperHot

Pretend you’re Neo in the Matrix while you fight the red guys trying to kill you! Pick up any weapon: guns, knives, anything lying around on the floor or on tables, etc. Slice bullets with a sword!

SuperHot is a favourite of a lot of players. Basically, you have these red guys coming at you.. but they only move when you do. So if you stand still, everything is stopped. When you move they come at you! You can duck behind tables for protection, reach up and grab a gun off the table, shoot a couple of guys, grab a sword and slice their slow-moving bullets in half and throw the sword at them! Tons of fun. Kids love it!

Sprint Vector

If you really want to get some good exercise in VR you can’t go past Sprint Vector! A full-on workout while you have friend racing against other players. Run, jump, fly, double-jump, climb.. it has it all!

Sprint Vector starts with tutorials explaining how to run. You need to sweep your arms down and pull yourself along. You can use buttons to grab walls and climb up. When jumping, put your arms out to fly along through hoops and other obstacles. Jump over ravines and hurdles. Grab onto edges to pull you along or up over obstacles. You use your whole body to play this one! Whew! I need a beer and some Netflix after this!

Lucky’s Tale

If you like playing Crash Bandicoot and want something similar for the Oculus Rift, give Lucky’s Tale a spin! Lots of jumping around, breaking boxes and collecting stars. It really feels like a Crash game!

It’s a very cutesy-style game with a story and tons of fun! The only drawback I’d say is you can only play via the Oculus Touch controllers which are not the best for a platformer type game like this. I’d prefer if they supported a gamepad at least. However, this is a minor issue and does not detract from the fact this game is madly fun to play!
