It’s called EmuVR and it’s offering old-school gamers a potentially brilliant way to play all their classic game ROMs in a virtual bedroom just like the one from their childhoods, with a huge range of classic gaming consoles to choose from, played on old CRT TVs (or modern displays if you prefer), ’80s/’90s posters on the walls, and lots more cool features:
I actually recently wrote a novella about VR that features Polybius throughout the story–you’ll have to dig deep to find all the references as some are real subtle (others are blatantly obvious)–and I definitely think some people who liked this video might also enjoy reading my story too, which you can link to below for free:
Also, the new Oculus Dash has been announced as coming soon for Rift (in addition to a revamped Oculus Home as well), and the Rift bundle is getting a permanent price drop to $400 too:
Pretty cool stuff all round.
I think that’s probably the most realistic computer generated person I’ve ever seen (not in a movie)–done in realtime and inside VR too–particularly all the subtle facial muscle movements, lip sync, and stuff like that.
This is my favourite novel of all time, so I’m REALLY hoping for this movie to be great. So far, it looks pretty good in the trailer.
By the way, if you’re into things like videogames, VR, tech, sci-fi and just anything ’80s related then I’d seriously recommend reading Ready Player One–seriously. It’s a genuinely brilliant story, and it’s easy to read too (so no totally nerdy stuff to put you off or melt your brain).
