In today’s post we will look at some of the news in Virtual Reality over the last week.
Paragliding in VR (in Denmark)
Universe Science Park, a danish amusement park with a focus on science, will be the first to showcase the “ParadropVR” experience.
The attraction combines the immersive feeling that Virtual Reality creates with hardware that lets the body experience the feeling too.
Not unlike the progress in creating suits that will let you experience the VR physically.
In addition to this new experience the park also offers other Virtual Reality experiences, such as the Tilt Brush from Google, that allows the user to paint in 3D.
NBA & TNT bringing VR to the court
In collaboration with Intel, TNT & NBA will be giving lovers of basketball a brand new experience.
Through big cameras mounted around the court, the viewer will be able to follow the game in VR as close as if they had courtside tickets.
This is meant for the viewers to go from being passive watching the game, to being an interactive part of it.
