Word on the street is that Sony will soon unveil their virtual reality headset for PlayStation 4. VR is the next-level gaming experience and apparently, Sony has taken it way beyond ts current 3D goggles, the HMZ-T2. If anybody has the bank and the know-how to make it happen, it’s Sony. The electro giant says it doesn’t comment on rumors, but if you listen to industry sources, the announcement may come at the Tokyo Game Show this month.
Is your brain ready to live your game? Fast-forward 38 years. In 2051, virtual reality is a full-brain experience.
Roxë is right in the middle of the action — the question is, will she survive it? Roxë15 is next-level science fiction — now raising funds on IndieGoGo to edit and master the film. Become a backer of sci-fi’s new voice.
Get your mind right, because virtual reality sex is closer than you think. Oculus (maker of the Rift VR headset) is brewing up some nasty with Sinful Robot (a producer of adult virtual reality experiences). The two companies are developing a “fully immersive erotic encounters” experience speficially for the Rift headset, which has full 3-D vision and high-tech movement sensors. Gamers and cyber-geeks from coast-to-coast have been raving about the Rift ever since they could get their hot hands on it. (All I know is that if the graphic up above is any indication of what’s in store, there BETTER be some sinful robots of the male persuasion!)
Could this replace The Rabbit?
According to the makers, the point of this is not scoring points or winning….the point is pleasure. (And, who can’t appreciate the option of hassle-free lovin’?) So if the thought of getting freaky with artificial intelligence gets your juices flowing, just be patient—Oculus and Sinful Robot promise that what they’re creating is going to put you in “the center of the action, the ecstatic epicenter of play.” I have two words for these people: Bring. It.
Apparently, we are one step closer to stepping into our video games. I, for one, can’t wait.
Oculus, a Long Beach, CA-based gaming company is now knee-deep in developing a cutting-edge Virtual Reality headset called the Oculus Rift. The Rift claims to offer “amazing degree of visibility and control within the 3D space,” and is described as “the first truly immersive virtual reality headset for video games.” How excited are game-heads? The company’s Kickstarter campaign to raise $250,000 breezed by its goal in hours. A month later, when the campaign ended, Oculus had raised just over $2.4 MILLION. In one month.
So how real is the Rift’s version of reality? Pretty damn real, thanks to some very serious tech features, according to NBCnews.com’s Winda Benedetti. Descriptions of the the test drive sound like either high-quality tech or high-quality drugs: Geek.com’s Sam Cook called the Rift experience “uncanny” and “spooky,” and described how his brain was “tricked.” Arstechnica.com’s Kyle Orland said that after the Rift, his legs were wobbly and his stomach was lurching.
