As the Oculus Rift launches in March, it promises to change how we interact with our digital worlds.
That’s a lot to take in.
And with the company looking to build a virtual reality platform that offers the potential to be as close to real as possible, you’ll need to know a little bit about VR tech to make sense of the potential for a virtual world to look, feel and play like a real one.
The best way to get an understanding of what VR can do for your work, and how to use VR for more creative purposes, is to take a virtual tour of VR in action.
Here’s a look at some of the tech that could help you get started, and what to look out for when you do. 2D VR games The first thing to understand about virtual reality is that it’s all about perspective.
The way you look at the world is not the way it will appear to others.
It’s not just about your eye tracking, either.
If you look into the future, you might see an entirely different kind of world, a world that is entirely different from the one you saw yesterday.
That doesn’t mean virtual reality can’t be used for games, though.
For example, imagine playing a VR-enabled video game as a sort of VR-like “interactive documentary.”
It might be a movie where you interact with the virtual world and the characters you see, interact with things, explore locations.
But you won’t be looking at the virtual environment, but rather the characters and the objects around you.
The virtual world can be anything you can imagine, and can be as realistic as possible.
And because virtual reality allows you to move in space, you can be a real-life actor in VR as well.
Here are some of our favorite games that use virtual reality to tell a story.
Astrid is a puzzle game for VR.
A game where you play as a girl who finds a mysterious box and must solve the puzzle within it.
You can take on a number of challenges with the box.
In the beginning, you need to find the box and open it, but eventually you’ll be able to solve it.
Here, you’re exploring a large environment, with many different obstacles to navigate, including walls, crates and barrels, floating platforms and a waterfall.
You have to collect various items to help you along the way.
There’s also an obstacle-filled puzzle room, where you’ll have to navigate a maze of platforms.
In Astrids world, you have to solve a series of challenges, including finding the box, finding the missing person, getting out of a boat and finding the lost girl.
A more serious game, however, has you fighting a giant robot that’s trying to take over the world.
You control a robot, who needs to defend itself against the giant robot.
You’ll be trying to defeat the robot with various gadgets.
The games can be played on an Oculus Rift or a PSVR headset, with a PlayStation Move motion controller or a PlayStation Camera.
Some of them even have controllers that you can use to navigate around the environments.
Here you can see the big game, which will take you through a series (called stages) that you have the option of completing.
You start by selecting an area of the world, such as a train station, to begin.
There, you will have to explore the various areas, which have a variety of objects to collect.
Once you’ve explored the entire area, you go into a level to begin a new level.
Here in this example, the platform you’re using has a button to jump, so you’ll go up to a platform to jump.
In addition, there’s a button on the bottom left to change your viewpoint.
Here we see a woman’s face, with an arm on her chest.
A small red button has been added to the top of the screen to activate the camera.
We’ll get into some of these in a minute.
You then have a number system to control the game.
The lower-left-hand corner of the Oculus Touch screen is called the “headset view,” and the upper-right-hand side is called “headphone view.”
There are two buttons that let you toggle these two views.
The top-right button on a headset view lets you switch between the left and right head-tracking modes.
The bottom-left button lets you toggle between the “on” and “off” view.
If we switch back to our “headview” view, we’ll see the two buttons on the top-left and bottom-right.
We’re now ready to get into the game itself.
The game is called Astroids Quest.
It has you and a bunch of other people going around collecting boxes to unlock new areas.
The boxes in the game will include things like “soul gems,” which are used to build items and unlock new levels.
In this example we’re looking at one of the boxes that we’ve got to collect
