We are beyond excited and super happy to announce that our mixed-reality attractions, ValoClimb and ValoJump have helped us reach an amazing milestone. In fact, we just celebrated Valo Motion's five year anniversary so this could have not come at a better time!
Since founding our company in 2016, we recently reached100 years of total product usage! This means that if we combine the overall product usage of our 700+ installed units, we have kept the players happy, active and healthy non-stop for a grand total of 100 years.
This is incredible and a lot more than we had anticipated. THANK YOU ALL for your incredible support and amazing feedback received about our mixed-reality attractions. Since the very beginning of our company, we set out to combine a fun activity with high-quality gameplay, and we are extremely happy to see that our games seem to motivate people to move!!
“Wall climbing and trampoline jumping are both great exercises, but ValoClimb and ValoJump makes them more fun and more efficient because of the incredible excitement they create for the players. You also will push your limits further when collecting points or competing against your friend. Players are super happy about action-filled and fun exercise and location owners get a lot of customers in to play our games. It’s a win-win situation." Dr Raine Kajastila, CEO and founder of Valo Motion
1Million hours of product usage
Looking at the data, we are suuuuper excited to say that we have another major milestone at hand: we have reached 1 million hours of product usage. That means that we have managed to motivate people to stay active by using our products non-stop for that extremely big amount of time. That does make your head spin a little bit, doesn't it? 😀 There is really nothing more we could have hoped for. Finally, our Operations Hub, an analytics tool that is included revealed that the best week usage-wise took place in this year's June where we saw over 15,424 hours of product usage! This is really very motivating to us since it lets us know that we are on the right path!
We were super excited already in 2019 when we realized that our mixed reality games had helped to burn over 350 million calories! To put this in another way, the 350 million calorie burn would have been the same as having the players walk around the world.... 145 times!!
If you are wondering how did we find out these numbers, here's how: our products come with a comprehensive Valo Motion Service which also includes access to our Operations Hub. This tool allows our customers to observe, among other things, the overall product and game usage on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. This data can be used to observe visitor behaviour and gain insight into which games the visitors love the most!
