It was October 2013 and even on Mondivirtuali we announced the launch of the beta version of InShape, an app developed byt InWorldz team to keep in form you and your avatar at the same time. Now, after more than a year, David Daeschler (aka Tranquillity Dexler), partner and software architect of InWorldz, has confirmed to us on Twitter that here we are: “Some other residents priorities have a little delayed, but here is the app for both iOS and Android!”
Indeed it is the third release of InShape (InShape 3.0), the first “not alfa” to be released. The information pages of InShape have thus been updated to give visitors an updated vision of how it works InShape, and how you can easily get from seeing your avatar on the screen of your TV during a training session. For sim owners in InWorldz, the InShape 3.0 kit is available at http://places.inworldz.com/InWorldz Desert Island / 158/65/22 and at http://places.inworldz.com/InWorldz InShape / 194/233/24. Were also released raw scripts under open Apache 2.0 source license here: https://github.com/InWorldz/inshape-inworld
The idea of merging real fitness activities and virtual reality seems indeed be gaining an increasing number of supporters, as demonstrated by the recent decision of the Trieste startup Widerun to start a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for developing its own device intended to allow those who are training on exercise bikes to use virtual reality viewers (or just TV screens or laptops) for recreation while they train, not necessarily in a gym.
Below the video of InWorldZ illustrating how does InShape3.0 work; then if you want to follow the development of virtual reality applications and not only, continue to follow Mondivirtuali.it also through our account on Twitter and our fanpage on Facebook (but remember: Mondivirtuali is even on Flickr, on Pinterest, on Scoop.it and on Paper.li, as well as on Youtube).
