Vingo is the latest app that uses technology to solve a global health emergency and a persistent problem. No, we are not speaking about the pandemic. Thankfully, the vaccines have minimised the impact of COVID pandemic & the world is limping back to normalcy.
The other global health emergency, obesity and other lifestyle related diseases are a grave concern for the world. As normalcy is gaining everywhere people have started to walk, jog, run and cycle in the wide open areas. However, that is not all that is required to tackle this situation.
Vingo is using the latest technology in virtual reality, augmented reality, and low energy activity tracking to provide a better exercising experience to people around the world. The app uses ANT+ sensors to connect mobile phones and other devices with the exercise equipment like treadmills and cycles. This way, the app is the perfect combination of technologies that give the best feedback and overall experience for an average person.
Usage of Virtual Reality
Virtual reality is still in its infancy. It is a developing concept and the pros and cons of the technology is yet to be fully explored. At the same time, VR is causing vibrations across fields. Many fields are exploring the possibilities of virtual reality. In fact, usage of virtual reality in fitness and wellness can yield very good results.
Vingo app is still under development and is yet to fully embrace the technology. Today, the app allows users to install it on Windows devices alone. Soon, the app will also be available for other operating systems like Android, iOS, Mac, etc. So, a user can use the app in a number of different scenarios and locations.
On the VR side, the app lets you create a visual replica of yourself, namely the avatar. This avatar will walk, run, and cycle inside the virtual world. So, imagine games like Unreal Tournament, PUBG and other first person shooter games. These are unhealthy as they require you to sit at one place and make you lazy. In fact, playing such games continuously can cause obesity, hypertension and other health problems.
The app is an overall technical solution that uses ANT+ sensors to connect your average treadmill with your smart device. This way, whatever you do in the real world, gets translated to the virtual world of the Vingo app. It is easy for you to connect any equipment with the app. If you need any urgent care, you can always contact support.
Engaging & Exciting Game Play
The app has the ability to track how much distance you run in the given time and the corresponding distance is travelled by your avatar inside the virtual world. In case, if you prefer cycling to walking, then there is that option too. So, you can explore the places inside the app with ease. As you exercise more and more, you explore more in the virtual. This ensures an engaging and exciting gameplay. That is how the app is able to give urgent care for all users and help them to get fit.
