Voyager Bridge Via The Oculus RiftPosted by T'Bonz - 21/04/14 at 11:04 am
Star Trek fans can tour the bridge of the USS Voyager via the Oculus Rift.
The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset currently under development which allows gamers to “step inside their favorite games [to] completely immerse themselves in the virtual world.”
The USS Voyager bridge program was created by Thomas Kadlec. “I’m a huge Oculus Rift fan, Star Trek fan, and Unreal Engine 4 [software framework for the development of video games] fan,” he said. “So I just figured I’d mix those all together!”
The USS Voyager bridge demo allows a viewer to “walk around a fairly accurate recreation of the Voyager’s bridge … [staring] out into space as you whiz past distant stars.”
