Unreal Engine 4 Powers Star Trek Voyager Virtual Reality Demo | Digital Trends
Virtual reality boldly goes where it hasn’t gone before in developer Thomas Kadlec’sStarship Bridge Demo, which allows players to exploreStar Trek Voyager‘s titular ship in a demo powered by Unreal Engine 4 (via Road To VR). It’s the first VR demo to use Epic Games’ newly released development tools, which feature built-in support for Oculus Rift VR’s headset.
Rift dev kit ownerscan download it right here (alternate link).This should go without saying for anyone that owns one of the headsets, but the demos visual fidelity will be restricted by the technical limitations of the first-generation Rifts low-resolution twin displays. Whats more, like most tech demos, this is an interactive toy to ooo and aah over, but theres not a whole lot to it. Star Trek fans will get a kick out of stepping into the Voyagers bridge, but the real point here is to showcase what UE4 could mean for VR development.
Oh, hell yes!
