Atlas Virtual Reality Turns Any Room Into A Holodeck You Can Run Around In

Archenemies for decades, video games and exercise are about to unite. Atlas is a cheap, new "walk-around" virtual reality system that uses markers you put on the ground to track your movements as you play with an Occulus Rift headset.
Jed Fisher's insight:

I've blogged before about the Occulus and the many new experiences that can/will be built around it.

At Siggraph this year it was indeed popular with many booths featuring an Occulus VR demo.

Here is a kickstarter project that takes the Occulus and together with a living room or basketball court allows for 

a) a great game :-)

b) a holodeck

c) a great training/simulation

 

I'm most interested in (c) as I think it has some real applications. 
That said, secretly I really do want my own holodeck  :-)

BMW Driving Simulator.

"Before BMW´s driving assistance systems become reality in the various models, they have to be tested. With the dynamic driving simulator experts can create virtual situations in daily life to check the functionality of these systems. This high-tech testing is necessary to guarantee the passenger´s safety on the road."

Jed Fisher's insight:

Thanks for link João,

The last Ford I rented had terrible visibility with the window reinforcement bar blocking much of my driver side view sight. Nice to see how BMW is trying catch potential design problems like this earlier.
