Oculus Rift Aims to Be a No Motion Sickness Experience

RATE THIS! +70
Posted in Games on 18th Oct, 2013 01:32 AM by AlexMuller

Oculus VR CEO Brendan Iribe pledged today that the company’s upcoming virtual-gaming headset, the Oculus Rift, will not cause people to get motion-sick when it launches.

 

And that still-unannounced consumer launch date definitely won’t be in 2013, Iribe noted.
 
Iribe, who appeared at D: Dive Into Media in February, discussed “The Future of the Rift” at the Gaming Insiders Summit today in San Francisco. He said the combination of improving screen quality and decreasing latency between motion in the game and virtual-reality vision will make the new class of games — or at least the ones not designed to cause motion sickness — nausea-free.
 
“It is going to work,” Iribe said. “It’s gonna work for everybody.”
 
The CEO used his own experience to back up the claim: His own company’s previous hardware made him sick within two minutes, every time he tried it in the past. But with the latest internal build of the Oculus Rift, Iribe said he played for 45 minutes straight with no issues.
 
Iribe also dropped two new notes about the Rift’s use cases: The headset will eventually have a 4K display, and it might work with big gaming consoles, as well as with PCs and mobile devices.
 
“You can’t imagine what it’s going to look like when it’s 4K,” he said. “It’s not now, but it’s coming.”

With the attempt to cure the nausea problem they are improving the screen quality and decreasing latency between motion in the game and virtual-reality vision in an attempt to make it a new class of games. I think VR is awesome so I hope everything works for them. Reply
