Paperboy adapted to the Oculus Rift, Kinect, and a stationary bike
It has been a longtime coming, but the revival of one of the greatest franchises ever conceived is coming through the VR pipeline. PaperDude VR is an experiment in bringing together the Oculus Rift, a Kinect, and a stationary bike to create a truly virtual paper delivery boy experience. Made by Globacore, I look forward to this being made available publicly so I can live my dream of vandalizing suburbia via newspaper.
1:13 *Asian joke* but honestly that really looks pretty cool
Stuff like this makes me miss the arcade market... A game like this would flourish in that kind of environment...
The future .... it's f*cking here !
they used kinect to detect the arm motions
I don't get how the game picks up him swinging his arms above his head but that hardly matters...I find this truly amazing. Inspired on a classic, using great new tech...I love it.
It looks great too bad there is so much lag. I really like the idea of using a real bike though. I'm still waiting on a new Paperboy game too. I was thinking something like GTA only with a suburban setting and less murder.
Truly, this is the apex of humanity. We have reached the summit people!
