3dRudder : a versatile motion controller.

The 3dRudder is a foot-based motion controller that provides fluid, and seamless motion in any kind of 360, 3D and virtual reality environments. Used seated, it requires no large dedicated space, can be operated for hours without fatigue, and is so intuitive to use that it takes only a few minutes to master its controls, even for non-gamers.


Discover how it works in VR

Get your feet to work, do more with your hands.

By assigning controls to your feet, users free up their hands for other tasks, hence expanding the range of opportunities, enabling achievement of complex tasks, and improving productivity and working condition.

Discover applications

Experience free movement.

Combinable

You can combine the 4 axes together to achieve simply complex movements, such as orbiting around an object.

Effortless

The sole weight of your legs on the platform suffices to trigger the 3dRudder.

Adjustable

Speed, acceleration and dead zone are adjustable independently for each axis

Intuitive

Trigger the 3dRudder with natural movements of your feet like tilting forward to move forward, rotating to turn around, …

A patented innovation in a simple look.

Upper pad + platform

Circular platform to rest your feet on, covered with an anti-slippery and easy-to-clean synthetic leather.

USB cable

Data recorded are sent to the PC via USB connection for tethered VR headsets or Bluetooth for wireless headsets.

IMU + Sensors

6 pressure sensors combined with an Inertial Measurement Unit track pressure, angle and steering and turn them into real-time motion into your application.

Lower pad + shell

Rounded basis designed to trigger the 4 axes with effortless movements, covered with a protective rubber pad.

Comfortable and ergonomic

Used while seated and being foot-operated, the 3dRudder naturally makes the user pay more attention to her working position and contributes to stimulating otherwise static legs. With motion controls reassigned to the feet, hands are relieved from repetitive, over-stressing tasks.

Did you know that?

WMSDs of the hand and wrist are associated with the longest absences from work and are, therefore, associated with greater lost productivity and wages than those of other anatomical regions.
