Blue Goji Debuts Infinity: SXSW 2018 Recap

Posted by Kyra Constam on March 22, 2018 at 12:06 PM

Our third year at the world-renowned South by Southwest (SXSW) Conferences and Festivals was our best yet. Thanks to the hard work of those in our office, as well as our partners, Blue Goji successfully showcased our latest endeavor: Infinity. The brand new, state-off-the-art treadmill has been handcrafted for us by Woodway Treadmills, designed in part by M3, a local design agency that previously helped Blue Goji win a Red Dot Award for Goji Play controllers. The self-propelled treadmill features Woodway’s signature curve design, while incorporating our gaming technology. Additionally, the machine features parallel bars and a sensored belt, making the machine extremely versatile for high-end gyms and VR arcades, but also physical therapy and rehabilitation facilities.

It's Never Too Late to Be Healthy

Posted by Kyra Constam on January 11, 2018 at 9:45 AM

The new year is always filled with ads from gyms and diet companies that seem to prey on those with the resolution to get healthy. Statistically, gyms are busiest in January as the regulars mix with the newcomers, who are trying to stick with their resolution. Inevitably, gyms do clear out after a month or two as people give up and vow to try again next year. While a brand new year is a great excuse (and possibly a needed motivation) to make a change, the reality is that it’s always a good time to work on yourself. Furthermore, it’s never too late to make healthy changes in your lifestyle. As NPR recently reported, even people in their 90s and beyond should welcome the idea of a wellness routine. In this post, we’ll share simple tips and tricks that people of all ages can do to make their lives healthier and keep it that way.

Welcoming 2018 at Blue Goji

Posted by Kyra Constam on January 4, 2018 at 12:11 PM

Another year has come and gone at Blue Goji! As we predicted in last year’s post, 2017 was a year focused on virtual reality. While we veered away from the consumer market, we continued to produce and develop VR content. Keeping with our mission to make exercise fun, all of the VR games aim to get you moving, either with or without our Goji Play controllers. Currently on our roster, we have DinoFense, GoWings Safari, Cardio Racers, PunchBeat, and Parkour Runner, with a few more on the way this year. Throughout the year, we showcased these games at events and conferences around the country to attendees’ delight. Many people who participate in our demos have never tried VR before, while the vast majority have never never coupled VR with exercise. It was incredible to see the great reactions of people enjoying themselves using our setup. In 2018, we plan to keep the good momentum going with some brand new concepts.
