Could The Void be the future of virtual-reality?
As cool as it is to don a VR headset and look into a new world, our bodies are stuck in cluttered environments, full of things to bump into and trip over. VR company The Void can’t turn your apartment into an expansive forest, but it can build specific centers tailored to deliver physical experiences that work in tandem with the virtual ones manifested by your hardware.
To do this, The Void adorns each player with quite a lot of hardware. As reported by Road to VR, The Void’s setup includes a VR headset along with a motion-tracking vest, gloves, and a backpack with a laptop in it. Since none of this is developed for commercial release, that frees The Void to focus on some rather extravagant high end computing.
I’ve super excited about this one. As someone who enjoyed a game of lazertag every now and then, the idea of combining this with VR just blows my little mind.
