Black Box VR
Black Box VR brings together the latest in fitness, technology, gaming, to create the world’s first virtual reality gym experience. The company was founded by fitness fanatics Ryan DeLuca & Preston Lewis.
The team spent years building Bodybuilding.com into the largest online supplement retailer in the world (with nearly $500m in annual sales). With the collaboration of many talented individuals, they created some of the world’s most recognized supplement brands, chart-topping fitness mobile applications, were honored with award-winning health & fitness campaigns, and created the world’s largest online fitness social network (with over 3m members), while always holding true to the mission of changing people’s lives.
In 2016 Preston and Ryan decided to start their new venture, Black Box VR, with a mission to disrupt the fitness industry once again by creating innovative products and experiences that create lasting change in people’s lives. After trying virtual reality for the first time, Ryan and Preston knew they were experiencing a magically immersive technology that, if paired with resistance training, gaming principles and high intensity cardio, will be the winning combination for people trying to reach their health & fitness goals.

Virtual Reality can change the world, and their Founder and lead inventor, Dan Thurber, saw that vision the minute he put on the Oculus DK1. Where most people put on a headset and are excited about the content, Dan put on the headset and wanted to know how he could improve it.
For decades, Virtual Reality has been plagued by Sim Sickness, a kind of motion sickness that is induced by problems with motion blur and latency. (This is different from general motion sickness.) How could VR change the world if too many people were getting sick inside the headsets? How could Dan’s vision for virtual reality be realized if the VR Experience wasn’t optimized? This vision for virtual reality that Dan saw in 2013 wasn’t just cooler gaming.
It was the way that virtual reality could continue the transformation of how they as people interact with content. This transformation has been underway since the early adoption of the personal computer and will continue well into the future.
They no longer just consume content; they interact with it. And virtual reality will bring that interaction into a third, and more intimate, dimension.
The IonVR team is already actively working on enterprise applications for VR, including medical devices and therapies, real estate, and manufacturing. Theyalso fundamentally believe that VR has the opportunity to connect people even further in their digital, social lives.
This opportunity to better the world, to make an impact with new technology, is what drives the IonVR team each day to bring this product to life.. .
