    who wants to actually move when playing games? imagine how exhausting a round of empires would be if youd have to actually run around for 2h ...

    i mean i would love to try this out once, but at home id rather sit on my lazy ass :D

    Oh sure, the fps part would be exhausting for sure, though it would also be more fun for me personally. I'm just thinking of comm view. Actually you could have a couple of comms on there, it'd be like those scenes in the movies where all these people in the command center are running around, except here they run around on top of the map and have a more active role.

    Nah you see the cool option would have you have to put the guy playing comm in a harness and just have them fly around the warehouse like some Cirque Du Soleil shit.

    You could make a fully immersive bridge from star trek and it would only require like one room. Although drawing textures on actual moving people might cause an issue

    I'm somewhat surprised that something of this nature isn't already patented. What does the patent space look like for your product? is the design unique?

    Oh so that's what krenzo looks like. Totally wasn't expecting some video of empires though, even if it was for just a few seconds.

    I still really want to command with this vr system, just running around the top of the map like a giant and dropping buildings for infantry, it just sounds so cool.

    They actually said they couldn't show it, because it was a lunch time show. They showed a bunch of other stuff in the program though, and it looked very cool indeed :D A lot of it was like Krenzo's trailer type video at the beginning of this topic.

    The Void can employ ugly old hookers, since looks don't matter when your client never takes his VR gear off. Think of all those fucked up possibilities :deadnf:
