Some time ago, the company has initiated Sixense kraudfandingovuyu company to raise funds for a project called STEM. Just a few weeks, a development company managed to collect an amount of 2.5 times the minimum requested. The reason for this interest of users is that engineers Sixense promised to create a complete virtual reality helmet with the ability to interact with the local reality, and not just to look at her, and interact with their same body.
Jedi lightsabers for gamers to become a reality
In fact, anything revolutionary Sixense did not. The company only collected and combined into a single device that does not exist the first decade. Namely, virtual reality helmet class Oculus Rift and multiple controllers on technology motion. As a result, the company was able to get the device for immersion in virtual reality with the ability to move around in it and interact with the local “objects” with their own limbs.
The company also wrote Sixense virtual environment for your child – a few games. While in the full version only two functions – a “Jedi lightsabers” and “virtual room”. The first application allows you to wave a lightsaber even pootbivat blaster shots. In this case, all the movements of the sword in the game depends on the movement of the arms controllers. In the second application the player is in the room apartments with different objects. He is allowed to completely destroy the room, play dice and move the different objects.
Although presented Sixense game is very modest, they open up for the first time in a long time is actually a new field for the development of the game industry, which will bring the game to a new level never seen before. The only drawback STEM remains its price. Buy all the equipment can be individually and independently, but it will take off in the amount of from 600 to 1000 dollars. The games themselves, created for this set – for free, and a virtual environment for creating them is open source.
