Is Playing VR Game The Best Way To Lose Weight?

- Oct 24, 2017-

According to statistics, the famous vr music game, AudioShield, has helped people burn 152,000 calories since it was released in 2016.


When it comes to weight loss, we've seen the effects of vr on the body, especially on the right diet. For example, the fitness bike plus the HTC Vive head show that you can play sports and have fun.


In collaboration with the San Francisco state university's kinematics lab, the new VR institute of health and sports hopes to quantify the health benefits of VR games. By measuring oxygen consumption and heart rate, measured data showed that, in terms of calorie consumption, playing VR games would be close to other strenuous activities.


"Thrill of the Fight," a VR boxing game, can burn up to 15 calories per minute, the equivalent of a sprint, according to the data.


The archery game Holopoint burns between 13 and 15 calories per minute, the equivalent of swimming.


The music game, Audioshield, burns between 8 and 10 calories per minute, the equivalent of rowing.
