Riding an animatronic horse while wearing a VR headset is the best of everything
VR games can take you anywhere, and now, they can even carry you into the sky on the back of an eagle. What? Futuretown, a VR gaming company backed by former HTC CEO Peter Chou, announced its new hardware platform called 5D Totalmotion at the Tokyo Game Show today. The device is a motion machine that's used in coordination with an Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or 3Glasses VR headset. The machine can have various modules screwed into it depending on the needs of whatever game is being played. So an animatronic horse body, for example, can be used to simulate riding a horse or eagle, or boots can strap users in for skiing.
