Does VR Kettler cycling + Oculus Rift Get Your Sweat On? VRexergaming at home

Connecting VR and fitness at home is exergaming customized to a user's preferences in physical activities. Kettler bikes have been moving this way previously with their cycling KETT app that has gamification features like social networks, leaderboards, and ride sharing features.  

In this French news piece on VRexergaming combination, being immersed in your cycling environment could be a great way to feel more like you're actually there. The cycle when connected to your mobile device actually adjusts when going up and down hills so it feels more realistic.

Exergaming Points to Ponder (ExP2P)

  • Sweating with a head piece on would be fine for a few minutes, but I wonder how comfortable it'd be for more than 10 minutes or a really sweaty workout? 
  • Can the straps be easily washed?
  • All we need is a fan to simulate some wind and we'd be in a near complete immersive environment.
