3DRudder

A virtual reality and 3D motion controller, is shown during "CES Unveiled.” The $175 controller, used while seated, allows for hands-free movement through virtual reality environments and is expected to ship in March 2016.

Just rest your feet on the platform, tilt the 3DRudder forward and you're moving forward in VR or in any 3D environment such as your favorite FPS game. In less than 15 seconds you'll master all the movements:forward/backward, strife right/left, rotate to the right/left, up/down. You can combine them all together and in less than a minute you're a pro at moving or flying in VR or in your favorite FPS game.

Your hands are free to do more. You have the edge.
