VR

VICE looks into it:

I actually didn’t realize the military had so much to do with the birth and early innovation of video games.

6:25 – DOOM was so legendary.

Bravemind looks interesting, and definitely seems like a good idea to have something like that.  Even though the graphics aren’t very modern looking, it’s amazing how after playing something for a few minutes your brain just forgets it doesn’t look ultra real, and deals with it.

Holy this is intense:

I would like to try this in person.  Not having tried VR before, isn’t it kind of weird you’re not actually feeling the objects you pick up, but instead you’re just gripping those weird control wants?  Or is it that immersive that your brain is fooled?  Im really surprised they haven’t done a Nintendo powerglove style thing you just wear, instead of these handheld controllers.

In case you didn’t notice, those are the freddiew guys (who used to do the cool videos with special effects).  I had no idea they were VR programming geniuses.

Thoughts?

haha well it looks like it has the potential to be fun.  I’m surprised a YouTuber hasn’t put holes in non-holed donuts yet… that seems like a good video idea.

Samurai Punk is the developer… they say it will be released in 2017.

Thoughts?
