Zero Latency‘s ‘Inversion Project’ is a VR system that enables gamers to explore worlds with an Oculus Rift strapped to their heads. The wireless technology allows you to move, jump, crouch and shoot in 360 degrees.
Offering unprecedented immersion, possible applications for users include exploring creations in real-time 3D, training for dangerous situations in complete safety, and full immersing themselves in a video game.
The game ‘Zombie Fort: Smackdown’ for the system challenges the wearer to escape hoards of zombies, using just a wireless backpack and trackable weapons. They become the controller and when they move in the world, they move in the game. Where they point their gun and shoot also maps to the game.
The Inversion VR system is launching in 2014 and will be on display at the Pause Festival in Melbourne, Australia, later this month. You can get a sense of it’s intense level of immersion in the video below:
