XR Station Controller
The XR Station was was developed by Teknik and released in 2006. It was a multimillion dollar project with years of research an development between physiologist, scientist, engineers, and game developers. At the 2006 Consumer Electronics Show it won “Innovation of the Year”, and there was a lot of promise.
It was designed for the user to move their bodies as a controller, and in doing so they’d burn calories (this was during the time the Nintendo Wii had just been released, and exercise and gaming was was the new fad).
Unfortunately the XR Station didn’t live up to all of it’s hype, mainly because it frankly didn’t work. It came and went very shortly and not many gamers even knew it had reached the market.
