Last week, I saw Torben‘s poster at VRST about using multiple sensor bars to extend the range of the wiimote. And yesterday, as I was looking around to find out how to adapt Half-Life 2 in VR, I stumbled on his page with nice research on immersive gaming, using Source Engine mods with the wiimote and with face tracking with only a webcam :
I really feel that it’s becoming easier to get a nice VR setup at home. The minimum that we should have is head tracking and one hand tracking. From that point on, we only have to use the mod capabilites of games and play VR!
Hum that’s the theory, practice is another thing, but let’s start trying!
