When we talk about the Oculus Rift, we are necessarily talking about virtual reality. If it has existed for several years, it is only today that it begins to democratize and to make its place in many areas. It was therefore necessary to know a little more about this virtual reality which, for my young age, was hardly present in my videoludic experience. Here I am heading to the premises of i'm in VR, a French startup dedicated to virtual reality and creator of applications and software solutions for the Oculus Rift (and other devices that we will see later).
Welcomed by a small team, both professional and warm, I set off to discover the different devices to be tested, accompanied by the conductor Sébastien Kuntz, director of i'm in VR. Three devices are presented to me, the zSpace, the long-awaited Oculus Rift and finally the Cave!
Glitter in my eyes, I had never seen so many devices dealing with virtual reality! I came with a primary objective, to be able to test Lemmings VR, I left with this objective achieved but also with many other discoveries that will remain engraved in my memory!
I will therefore try to find the words to explain this unique experience, because as Sébastien Kuntz told me:
Soon three articles will come to conclude this one with a much more detailed explanation of the devices that I was able to test, namely:
- The zSpace
- L'eye Rift
- The Quarries
I would like to thank Sébastien Kuntz and his entire team for welcoming me to their premises in order to give me a unique and magical moment that I will certainly never forget.
