It's pretty awesome that the dart board keeps score.

Oh man that looks fun. Also, the two VR dudes are the exact thing we'll point to in 5/10 years and say can you believe we thought that was amazing!?! I really think (hope?) the VR technology will take off and improve rapidly. I'm sure there will be a time when it will be a true avatar of yourself playing against other people.

Other points of view? Like, you want to be the chick being railed on? Hey, no judgments here.

Your cup of tea is sitting in the corner of a room and watching two people have sex?

Been piling on the games with the Steam and Oculus sales along with having people over trying them all out.

Really enjoying Defense Grid 2. Tower defense is so cool when you can move your head around in the actual space and stare down on the actual towers and mobs.

Tries out the demo for Sisters on Samsung VR. Amazing how eerie it was with animated characters. Can't imagine how scary it would be with realistic graphics. Loved it!

I wasn't sure where to put this.

Anyone up for a $75,000 racing simulator, complete with oculus rift?

http://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/cx...ig-ive-tested/


Quote:
Atop the base is the racing bucket seat. This seat is anchored from below, but can be moved about that anchor by a pair of massive hydraulic actuators that also serve as the seat's rear uprights. These strong arms are rated for industrial-grade duty cycles and should last for thousands of hours of racing. I, the driver, was held in place by a multipoint racing harness connected to the base. Interestingly, because of the way the belt ties into the base, you get a bit of belt tensioning, which helps with the feeling of inertia when virtually braking.

The seat has rumble motors built into it combine well with the powerful bass of the surround-sound system. The steering wheel uses a real racing quick-release -- enabling the owner to quickly swap between, say, a formula racing wheel and a street wheel -- also features a powerful force-feedback motor and paddle shifters. The pedals are genuine hydraulic units pulled from the parts bin of a road car and can be tuned and adjusted to mimic the pedal feel that the driver wants. And the entire setup is modular, so you can, for example, add or remove an h-pattern shifter or change the pedals, seat or pretty much any other part of the whole. A flight stick and helicopter controls are also on the menu for those who want to use the Motion Pro II for flight simulators.

Front and center is the the panoramic triple-screen setup, which delivers 6,220,800 pixels and a 180-degree field of view. (The system comes standard with just one screen; the three-head upgrade is an option.)
Quote:
When in the heat of the race, wheel to open wheel with other digital formula race cars, I believed I was back at Willow Springs, Mazda Raceway or Sonoma. When I came in too hot on the last turn of Willow Springs and was nudged off track by an AI racer, I literally screamed. But at the same time, I knew well enough that the experience wasn't so real that I was freed to push the limits of my abilities just that bit harder than I would with the fear of death looming overhead. I didn't want to get out of the simulator at the end of my almost 3 hours of testing.
Quote:
I was totally sold on this setup at the end of my testing session. The only reason I went home at the end of the day to my beat-up Miata seat and force feedback wheel was the high cost of entry. The base Motion Pro II simulator starts at $49,000 for the single-head Standard setup with an additional $1,650 to add Oculus Rift integration. And that's just the start because, as I stated, the whole thing is modular, so CXC will happily customize every part of the build for a price. Check every option box and a top-tier, three-head Pro system with Oculus will run $75,275. (For comparison, my janky home setup cost me about $600.)

I know what you're thinking, because I'm thinking the same. It's probably somewhere along the lines of, "If I had an extra 75 Gs lying around, I'd buy an actual Porsche Boxster S." The Motion Pro II isn't really the sort of plaything for a person who can afford a Porsche; it's the sort of toy for the person who already has a few Porsches.
Spoiler!

So has anyone here who hasn't bought one used one at a friend's house and felt compelled to buy? I'm on the fence still.

I tried the Oculus link but all it did was send me to the oculus website/login. With the video quality of the videos they had listed outside of the Oculus I wasn't very hopeful. Didn't dig further tbh.

Hello guys, I've just opened a VR Arcade here in Calgary! At the current time, we have a specifically padded room with two HTC Vives and a maximum of four players per 1 hour session. If this is popular, we will look into bringing in other new VR technologies and more spaces for people to enjoy!

Our plan is to buy every good VR game on the Steam library and allow you to try everything you would possibly want to play. If there's a specific game you want to try, please let me know! Level 1 VR is located inside Level 1 Escape Room which is another fun activity to try.

Calgarypuck members get 10% off each VR session! Just PM me and I'll send you an individualized promo code!
