PrioVR Kickstarter Ends at Over $320,000 in Funding

YEI Technologies Kickstarter campaign for its PrioVR full body motion controller has ended in massive success. The campaign closed today having made $322,104 USD in funding, nearly $250,000 more than its original $75,000 goal. A total of 854 different backers provided funding. In its month-long campaign the technology managed to pass 3 different stretch goals. The company had teased that it would offer to buy back Oculus VR from Facebook for a $2 billion stretch goal.

PrioVR is essentially a fully body controller designed for use with virtual reality (VR) titles, although not limited to them. The suit features a number of sensors that users strap to their bodies, with movements registered in the experience being played. For this campaign, YEI Technologies offered 3 differen’t versions of the suit, including an 8 sensor Lite model, 12 sensor Core one and a 17 sensor full body Pro version.

The kit will come with a number of built-in demos that can be used with the Oculus Rift VR headset, including dance and zombie titles as well as a dodgeball experience. Its final stretch goal also promised custom hand controllers that would be erognomically designed as opposed to the currently-used Wii nunchuck controllers.

The suit is expected to ship in June 2014 for Kickstarter backers. VRFocus will continue to follow PrioVR’s development and report back with all the latest.

  1. gamers still don’t get it.
    Still people happily give their money to Kickstarters and in the end they end up being ripped off!
    it’s fine to give £5, but many give £500!

    we’ve seen the nonsense with Oyua, and Oculus Rift.
    what about this?

    this application moves slow anyway
