Now that the entire virtual reality space has gotten a big boost from Facebook’s $2 billion deal to buy Oculus, who’s next?
Maybe it’s Survios, a company that was came out of the very same University of Southern California Mixed Reality Lab that Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey came from.
Right now, virtual reality is pretty stationary: you sit there, put on a headset and are transported to an entirely new world.
But with Survios, it’s like a Kinect-meets-Oculus Rift. You’re moving around, pulling virtual arrows of your back, whipping around a tommy gun and unholstering pistols from your virtual side pockets all by moving around your hands.
To say the least, the experience is incredible. You really do feel like an action hero, like Neo in the Matrix or like you’ve woken up inside of “28 Days Later.” (Watch the video, please. I can’t really describe it in words.)
