Merging virtual reality in gaming has long been a dream. Even while many people like the idea about it, setting up a virtual reality gaming rig had its limitations. The best that people can experience then was just to “see” the virtual reality. But moving in it does not seem to be any more realistic than using a joystick to move around. But the technology is continuing to advance. Soon enough, gamer will be able to get as closer to a virtual reality experience as they will be able to in future games. There are now like the upcoming Cyberith Virtualizer that will make this possible.
The Cyberith Virtualizer is currently a Kickstarter project. But it certainly is gaining some popularity based on its fund campaign, which has so far gone over the target. It has the means to provide a closer experience to virtual reality than ever. It features a flat surface where you can walk or run in place just as like you do on a treadmill. It makes use of haptic technology with omni-directional features to allow you to move around while still in place. It also features a movable ring that goes around your waist while you are attached to it via a harness. The ring allows you to rotate, jump, kneel and even sit down and it translates your actions into the video game. Combined with virtual goggles and a wireless controller, you can be immersed into a virtual reality setting feeling as if you are really there. The Cyberith Virtualizer can change the way people look at virtual reality. Some might even say that it will revolutionize the way people play video games. If you are interested in virtual reality, the Cyberith Virtualizer is something you should try. If you wish to become one of the early adopters, you can even pre-order one for $749 at their Kickstarter page. Estimated delivery of this virtual reality units will be sometime in March of 2015.
