New App Immerses Thrill Seekers In Fastest Sport On Ice

Winter sports fans who crave the speed and intensity of the bobsleigh can now experience the thrills from the pilot’s seat with the Bobsleigh 360 app for Android and iOS.

Users can experience the precision of the team’s climb into the sleigh, the struggle of the push-off, and mind-bending speeds approaching 90 mph as the bobsleigh races down an Olympic bobsleigh track, banking through 15 to 20 heart-stopping turns.

Bobsleigh 360 app features:

  • 360-degree video of actual bobsleigh runs
  • User-controlled viewpoint during the run
  • Support for 2D and VR viewing
  • New runs and tracks added as they are available

Bobsleigh 360 is based on a first-of-its-kind VR training tool developed by Raydon Corporation, a military simulation training company, in Port Orange, Florida. Raydon created the training tool to improve the safety and performance of bobsleigh teams. Bobsleigh 360 gives coaches a 360-degree view of a pilot’s high-speed run, where every millisecond counts. It can be viewed on a tablet or on a VR headset for a fully immersive experience. The Latvian bobsleigh team, silver medal winners at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, has incorporated the tool into their training regimen in preparation for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Raydon has donated the training tool to Latvia and other countries.
