Oculus rift + Kinect 2.0 would be an awesome combo

PoSTedUP1614d ago (Edited 1614d ago )

thatd be cool if they could implement seeing and controlling your hands and body in a VR world through kinect. though sounds like it would take a lot of time and money developing one decent game that coud do that atm and how would one move a character w/o buttons and joysticks? i think gloves and controllers will be ideal for starters.

i cant wait for sonys VR, ms should deff buy oculus rift.

"though sounds like it would take a lot of time and money developing" Yessir.

but it sure would be nice to see a kinect game with this.

I think that it would be a huge tool for mental health issues though...

PoSTedUP1612d ago

@lal- yeah deff. oco rift has a concept demo where you wear a glove and control a single arm in the demo.

@cueil- wadda u mean? a tool to escape? or to help someone with mental issues? or neither...

Damn that would be so awesome. I hope they build a great relationship with Microsoft and eventually release oculus for X1.

jeffgoldwin1612d ago

They will be releasing the Kinect 2.0 sensor for the pc. So theres that.

New favorite comment. Have a bubble.

Having that second OS and the custom processor with ample RAM, could really help Opus out if needed. That Second OS was intended for running apps, but could end up having multiple unintended benefits.

From my understanding the Oculus this far is only for pc. So I assume they had a wworking relationship with Microsoft from the get go. Oculus for consoles honestly would be weird imo. Not likinformation the kinect 2.0 + Oculus comments much. VR is cool, but when it's, 'your body is the control' that's just stupid. I'd rather the "your mind is the control' idea, ala sword arts or dot hack.

Dude.. Nobody needs to actually talk to Microsoft to create an app for Windows, its open. I can go now and create an x86 or X64 app and share it with everyone and Microsoft wouldn't even know. The only apps that Microsoft needs to check are the ones through the Windows Store.
