Home-made 'immersive' VR solution for playing Skyrim
Virtual Reality comes to Skyrim
Killing the chickens at Whiterun never felt so good, but man, you will look like an idiot in this homebrew VR gear!
By Vito Cassisi -- March 19, 2012 via ISPR -- The idea of virtual reality interaction has intrigued the minds of many generations, yet has struggled to get a foothold in mainstream acceptance. Potential users have core expectations for VR technology including reliability, convincing immersiveness, and the ability to play without throwing up all over company.
An entrepreneur by the name of Chris Zaharia has produced his own "immersive" VR solution for playing Skyrim on PC, and has posted the instructions on his website.
To build one of these newfangled contraptions requires approximately $1,500 of gear, including a Sony HMZ-T1 head mounted display, a Kinect, a TrickIR5, a TrackClip Pro, Shoot speech recognition software, FAAST Kinect gesture-to -keyboard mapper, a microphone, and an Nvidia GPU for stereoscopic 3D.
