So, I was thinking about vr… if any of what im saying has been done
before, please tell me, im really interested to know!
If anyone has seen the lawnmower man (the first movie, the second one
was a complete waste of time.) remember those rings where the dude is in
the middle of it and he spins around in it?
I was thinking about that, and thats a pretty cool way to do it, cause
youd feel the orientation of the ring… doesnt take that much space up,
has a lot going for it.
What its lacking though is true collision detection with feet on the
ground, holding the gun with the trigger on your finger… I imagine
maybe you could do this with a powered suit/skeleton you wear, and if
you collide with a virtual object, the skeleton will power against any
movement to try and penetrate the object. It should actually slide
against it also, maybe some inverse kinematics maths could handle that
say you got that perfect, and you could walk up stairs, hold a virtual
gun, pick it up, run and jump over cliffs, even maybe take some force
feedback from virtual hits off opponents…. it would be totally
awesome, you could train anti terrorist units with it, just by playing
cod in a more realistic immersive way.
how much $$$ you reckon this would take to put together? :) And has
it been attempted before, im interested to know.
What do you think?

About $650. $400 for a cool milsim paintball
marker. $200 on clothing and
accessories. And $50 for an all day pounding.
As for the Tron-esque VR, I think we’re a long way from that. Most of
what I’ve seen and experienced include panoramic screen helmets, impact
pads on specially made vests and belts (which are cumbersome), and
rumble packs in accessories. Paintball is cheaper and fun.
I swear if you invented it, people would want to invest in it, how much
fun would it be! :)
