New Project: Virtual Reality and Stationary Trainers

The new project that I will be working on will be creating a virtual reality environment for stationary trainers, in this case, I will be working with a stationary bike trainer. The end goal is to come up with software and a mechanism to have an individual exercise on a stationary bike trainer while wearing a Virtual Reality headset and have that software render a real life environment, so essentially the rider will feel like he or she is actually riding a bike out on a road. This will not only make the whole experience of using a stationary bike trainer better, but it can allow for healthy competition with yourself or others. Our software will be able to save previous times and display those times as ghosts on the current ride. This project will be able to make stationary trainers more than just an exercise machine, it will make it an interactive game with exercise as your controller.
