PrioVR Full VR Body Suit

September 5th - via: ubergizmo.com
Virtual Reality (VR), the Holy Grail of gaming, does seem to have improved by leaps and bounds over the years, but somehow or rather, it has not really managed to hit the lofty and intended heights to date. Well, this does not mean that those with the technical know how and a dream to make it happen are going to let the world of VR remain stagnant. Here we are with a Kickstarter project known as the PrioVR, which will be a full VR body suit that would enable you to achieve real-time, full-body control over an in-game character. This is the stuff of dreams, where you can remain fully immersed in the game, although there is the remote possibility of being so “into” the game, that you run into a physical wall – literally. (Read More)

PrioVR Full Body VR Suit is Ready to Blow Your Mind

September 4th - via: crunchwear.com
The world of virtual reality eyewear is blowing up lately. We have Oculus Rift, Google Glass and all kinds of copycats heading our way. But what good is virtual reality eyewear when we still have to use a boring old keyboard or controller to move our avatar around? When we kick, we want our dude to actually kick! It’s basic science(?) However, that kind of fully immersive VR tech is way off in the future, right? Well, not quite. There has been some movement on that front. After all, motion control technology has been around en masse since the Wii. On that note, here is something that just might blow your mind. (Read More)
