Opaque Multimedia are set to release a space exploration game that looks truly immersive. Your character will be an astronaut on the ISS and you can float about in space and look down on earth from 431km above.
They have created their own proprietary Kinect 4 Unreal plugin, that allows the Oculus Rift and Kinect 2 to work together. This, along with the games stunning photo-realistic scenery, should be enough to fool your mind into thinking you’re 431 kilometres from Earth’s surface.
“Proprioception is the awareness of the position of your body and joints.” said Opaque developer Chris Mackenzie. “When we replace people’s body with a virtual avatar that mimics their movement, we need to ensure that what they’re seeing matches what they think their limbs are doing, otherwise it makes for a deeply disturbing experience.”
