HOLOFIT’s been available for about a year in gyms, but it's now received a proper Oculus Quest home release as well. It’s unique in that it can connect to real-world equipment, so if you have a bike, elliptical, or rowing machine at home (even a dusty one), you can sync HOLOFIT and bike through San Francisco, row around the Arctic, and more—or just use your Touch controllers to simulate the same movements, if you’re looking for something lower-impact.

Developer: Holodia
