Tell us about yourself

Hi my name is Terry. I have a combination recumbent cycle / rowing machine. There are NO handlebars but side grips on the seat. I am also a (relatively new) Oculus Dev (I have the Go and the Rift-S) using Unreal 4 (Yes, I know VZFit is done with Unity Wink. I am also a cancer survivor (and in doing support I have found that exercise is an area many survivors struggle with). I am wondering about the ability to add a single person scull in different waterways? I have always enjoyed rowing more than cycling and it does give the better workout. (But what to do about a sensor(?)
Before I retired I was a programmer and robotics engineer.

We have a pedal-kayaking experience that's ready to port from our earlier PC version, that would provide the visual experience of rowing but feels natural to pedal. If you want to actually row rather than pedal, our Sensor will still work if there's a fully rotating surface you can attach it to, but you might have to compensate with the difficulty setting to get the right speed.

We're also looking into ways it could provide speed from oscillatory motion as well as rotation in a firmware update. That would be less accurate and responsive but could allow many more types of exercise equipment to be used with VZfit games.

Re Discord that's a cool idea, will see if it's possible!
