Black Box VR gym

Australian T3 - - 2018’S GADGET WISHLIST -

Not every­one loves the idea of go­ing to the gym to hang out among sweaty bod­ies in var­i­ous states of vis­i­ble ex­er­tion. Black Box is a con­cept to out­fit you with a VR head­set as you train. You’ll be play­ing a game cus­tomised for you by AI, con­trolled by us­ing the gym equip­ment. Black Box says it’s great for re­ally tough work­outs, be­cause “…your brain will per­ceive ac­tual dan­ger or ur­gency and push past your per­ceived lim­i­ta­tions.” Which sounds hor­ri­fy­ing, ac­tu­ally, but we love the idea. The first gym opens in San Fran­cisco this year, rolling out to more lo­ca­tions in the fu­ture. $TBC, black­box-vr.com
