THE NEXT BIG THING IN VIRTUAL REALITY GAMING

A new project called THE VOID is a virtual reality gaming environment that may mark the future of entertainment which–for bad or for good–doesn’t involve a couch and potato chips. The startup–based in Salt Lake City, Utah–combines both physical and virtual elements into a single gaming platform. Players enter the game being placed in a specially constructed set and, when paired with a VR headset and vest that track a player’s movements, magic happens. You can cast spells, kill zombies, or avoid the alien anal probe in one of the several gaming themes that THE VOID can immerse you in. Check out the vid:

VIRTUAL WINDSHIELD

Jaguar Land Rover is developing a virtual windshield system complete with interactive heads up display, ghost car navigation, and a 360 degree unhindered view of the road and I want it in my PT Cruiser CONVERTIBLE (playa’s gotta play) yesterday. The windshield system displays useful information like speed and rpm and also eliminates blind spots with video screens embedded in vehicle pillars. Check out the demo video:
