ZephVR – Real Wind for Virtual Reality

After only launching on November 2nd, the crowd funding campaign for ZephVR, a VR fan accessory designed to “add realistic wind at the right moments” achieved its $30,000 goal on Kickstarter after just a few hours. Weasel Labs, ad VR hardware start-up, has now raised over $41,000 half way through its now popular campaign.

The new addition to VR promises to further immerse users and will be compatible with all major console and PC based VR systems including HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Playstation VR.

Beyond this, Weasel Labs also hope to bring other peripherals and physical effects such as heat, vibration and rain to further enhance the users VR experience.

The development team at Weasel Labs explain more.

“Feel what it’s like to fly through the air, have bullets whiz by you, or be attacked by ghosts! The ZephVR is an accessory that attaches smart fans to any VR headset and adds realistic wind at the right moments. So when you fly, fall, or accelerate – or when there’s wind in a game – you’ll actually feel it.

The ZephVR attaches quiet, lightweight fans to your VR headset to add wind to any VR experience. The ZephVR uses machine learning to recognize the sound of wind and motion in any audio track automatically, and as such, will work pretty well with any game out of the box!”
