Immersive Simulation with Oculus Quest and YawVR. Alphacore, an innovative integration of the latest in Virtual Reality technology and YawVR, a 360 degrees motion simulator that gives the user an immersive experience as though driving an actual vehicle.
The technology features the integration of the use of a VR headset (Oculus Quest - https://www.oculus.com/quest/) with a motion simulator such as the YawVR (https://www.yawvr.com/) Alphacore is a VR game made for the Oculus Quest, where you play as a pilot in a tank-like futuristic shooter game. This goal is to immerse the player into the game environment fully and demonstrate the capabilities of Oculus Quest and YawVR.
Interested partners can liaise with the School of Design & Media to commission a project to develop a version for the partner’s use case – i.e. for user training of handling vehicles, immersive tourism experience to visit other places or countries.
Technology Features, Specifications and Advantages
Oculus + YawVR gives a 360 rotational immersion that a VR device alone will not be able to provide.
At the same time, the Oculus Quest provides an untethered VR experience that previous VR devices could not achieve. This is exceptionally useful in an immersive simulation featuring traveling around in a vehicle.
