Icaros teams virtual reality gaming and fitness

Icaros is an award-winning new gaming workout that enables you to fly, dive and drive through virtual worlds and exercise at the same time.

The Munich-based developers call the technology Active VR. The human-sized gyroscope-looking device is designed as a gaming machine with measurable physical training effects.

Users can explore a simulated virtual world using virtual reality goggles and controlling their flight path via their movements on Icaros.

The device is designed so that users can train different muscle groups – shoulders, chest, neck, triceps, lateral abdominal muscles, quads and calves – and improve their reflexes, balance and concentration.

The wireless device consists of four parts, the Icaros machine plus Controller, the game and a VR headset. Users can choose from different gaming scenarios – a relaxing free flight, a thrilling race, or the action-packed battle mode.
