This 60-meter wide Beat Saber mod is an ideal proof of concept for the mobile Oculus Quest, allowing this tireless modder to move to the beat of his creation around a large park, free from the tethers of higher-end VR equipment. The aptly-named "Project Sprint" is a ridiculously large 90-lane Beat Saber map expertly modded in collaboration between VR creators TougeVR (opens in new tab), Joetastic (opens in new tab), QTpop (opens in new tab), and Ruu (opens in new tab).
Beat Saber can already provide quite an exercise routine in traditional 4-lane tracks, but add sprinting into the mix, and well, I'm exhausted just watching this impressive show of stamina and modding prowess. For the uninitiated, modders began making 6-lane tracks earlier this year, but a 90-lane track was virtually unheard of - not to mention utterly unthinkable - before this monstrous creation emerged.
It's frightening, impressive, nerve wracking, and completely fascinating to watch someone traverse a 60-meter map across a park while swinging virtual light-sabers against rhythmic targets in a park in broad daylight. And of course, none of this would be possible without the wireless Oculus Quest, making this a better trailer for the VR kit than most of the existing marketing material.
The creator's YouTube caption promises greater things to come: "This is just a little teaser for "Project Sprint"; a collaborative project between TougeVR, Joetastic, QTpop and Ruu. The final Project Sprint will be unlike anything you've seen before. I can't wait to show you!"
