I tried playing games with the Oculus Rift DK1. It wasn’t great, especially for FPS. I know that many others are fine with it, but it was just too damn fast for me and made me feel woozy. I LOVED exploring scenes though. Apparently I wasn’t the only one. One of the big trends right now for VR in general is recreating environments that we have all wanted to explore.
Here are a few iconic examples of starship bridges you might recognize.
It isn’t all spaceships though, here are a couple anime scenes recreated so that you can walk around and see what is going on.
I really like this concept. I know I intend to spend my time exploring things without the stress of a “game” attached. I can think of a rediculous amount of places I’d love to explore.
- Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory
- Doc Brown’s laboratory
- Several places from Labyrinth
- a few sets from the dark crystal
- The great tree from Avatar
Where would you like to go?
