Virtual Reality Exercise Bike Is Almost Like Going Outside

With 3D movement and Oculus Rift support, Norwegian Activetainment's fitness bike, the "Ebove B\01" (via Prostetic Knowledge), can help put some fun into the rigorous monotony of training. Install some mechanical fans and it's almost like going for a real ride.

Here's the whole concept, showing how it works with an Oculus Rift added.
