Star Trek-Inspired Holodeck Title for Oculus Rift
When virtual reality (VR) fans talk about the history of the technology, the holodeck from science fiction series Star Trek: The Next Generation is usually referenced. Appearing in the pilot episode of the series in 1987, it provided a visualisation of what we might one day expect from a full VR experience. Now an indie developer has paid tribute to the concept, with its own videogame that supports of the Oculus Rift VR headset.
Here’s an obvious application for the Rift. When you think of VR, if you’re a Trek watcher in any of its forms except for maybe TOS you think of the holodeck (or holosuites if DS9 was your thing). This Rift version of a holodeck is an interesting attempt to recreate that and well worth checking out.
