Experience Zero Gravity In VR
If you don’t have a few thousand dollars to spend on a Vomit Comet ride, and especially if you cant afford to buy a ticket for a future weightless joyride in a spacecraft, virtual reality remains the best option to experience weightlessness. Theres a new game available for the virtual-reality headset Oculus Rift that lets people play with objects in microgravity to see what happens next. Called Weightless, the game appears to have a person zooming around a sort of space station and playing with things including pill bottles and cubes, seeing how they spin and soar without gravity’s pull weighing them down.
Great concept here. Manipulating objects in real time in low gravity could be quite interesting.
