Tech demo lets you visit the International Space Station in VR
Move your hands out in front of you and you’ll see in your headset a space-gloved hand exactly where you’d expect it to be. Similarly, reach out to a handle or bit of scaffolding and give it a tug and your virtual self will begin to float forwards. It was difficult to make this work from a technical standpoint because even a millisecond delay or minor deviation between your movement and your avatar’s movement can make the experience more horrifying than exhilarating.
This one looks really, really good. I’m looking forward to having my George Clooney/Gravity experience anytime soon. Just without the whole floating off into space and dying part.
