Introducing EKTO ONE
EKTO ONE is a new way to experience virtual reality. Because users are free to walk naturally on the device, it avoids the motion sickness and disorientation associated with current VR locomotion techniques. EKTO ONE’s motorized footwear enables movement in all directions, making it easy for beginners to feel comfortable during their stay in the virtual world.
Take your first steps towards virtual freedom
There are millions of virtual miles just waiting to be discovered in the metaverse. Why not walk them in our boots?
Built for any world missions, we designed the EKTO ONE to be supremely lightweight, touring-friendly and, yes, pretty darn tough. Their carbon fiber construction is remarkably strong and responsive— but won’t weigh you down.
The EKTO ONE is the result of years of research and development, integrating advanced sole technology to create a quiet, smooth, and reliable experience. Offering the most natural VR locomotion available today, its design creates stable footing for you on your adventures through virtual reality.
Enjoy an all-day adventure with the EKTO ONE, a durable and low-profile strap design provides an outstanding response that creates accommodation for most shoe sizes.
Novel Omnidirectional Drive Technology
With a foundation in advance robotics and artificial intelligence, the EKTO ONE allows you to walk confidently and smoothly through any virtual terrain.
Safe, Strong, Wearable Design
Setting the bar high, the EKTO ONE lets you take charge of whichever virtual world you drop in to. Advanced technology adapts the EKTO ONE to most shoe sizes while separate plates on the bottom of each boot allow for a full range of motion.
Adaptive Control Software
Our Vestibular System (equilibrium) is extremely sensitive. EKTO ONE’s adaptive control software connects head movements with a natural walking motion to completely prevent sensory disociation.
The VR locomotion solution you’ve been waiting for.
Gone are the days of simulating walking on the spot, or strapping into a virtual treadmill. Be one of the first to experience the true freedom that virtual reality can offer.

“I also preferred this kind of locomotion to the one of the omnidirectional threadmills like Virtuix Omni, because with the latter, I have the sensation of slipping on ice while I am walking, while this motorized shoes give me more the sensation I am walking naturally.”
– SKARREDGHOST, The Ghost Howls
“Our tests included walking on a treadmill, adjusting controls in an oil refinery, and playing a game, complete with walking through a hall and down a short flight of steps. In each case, it took only a few moments to acclimate; then it felt natural, as if I were really moving.”
– David Radin, NEXT Pittsburgh
“EKTO’s VR boots (called EKTO One) let you physically walk to propel yourself through VR, but the really neat thing is that when you’re taking those physical steps wearing the robo-boots, you won’t physically move through the room you’re in. The boots, using what I consider to be a form of robot magic, let you walk in place.”
