What Inspired You to Make This?

Working for the past 8 years in Game Development/VR I felt like I wanted more out of games, more movement, more style, more intricate game mechanics. I can't remember how many times my parents yelled at me for sitting down playing video games. Overtime, I realized making games more physical demanding like Wii Fit, or Wii Sports bridges the gap between parents and children. So, as time went I started working on projects that started enabling more movement and interaction to games and applications. On day at college, a professor in Discrete Mathematics class showed us multiple types of controllers that can be used in games. One stood out to me, the professor put a boogie board on top of a medicine ball-thing. The way you could move on the board intrigued my sense of extreme sports and feeling of moving. So, I started to work on a vr version of CyberSurfer with an amazing team and friends.
