Paperdude VR combines Oculus Rift and bike-ridingGlobacore aims to reinvent museum exhibits and more with Oculus Rift: their take on the classic game Paperboy uses Oculus VR goggles and a bike, and we gave it a dizzying ride.
Hi. I'm Scott Stein and where exactly will the future of video games take us in terms of maybe interactive museum exhibits and the like. Global Core Technologies built Paperdude VR, which is another way to use an Oculus Rift and a kinect sensor combined with a stationary bicycle to create a sense of [unk] to paperboy were delivering papers while riding a bike and looking around. Trying it out-- it is pretty cool even without my ability to use my glasses. I was essentially super nearsighted and yet able to get a sense of 3D vision and tried my best throwing the papers around. But you can get a sense that not only that this show for motion technology and the Oculus can go but maybe you could see the stuff in museum kiosks. Maybe you could see what something was like hundreds of years ago or walk like a dinosaur or who knows what else. That's what Global Core is basically trying to do here. So I tried using it as a quick look probably the future of games and maybe little kiosks like that. I'm Scott Stein with a quick look and play with Paperdude VR here in New York.
