Future Perfect

Now if you're a bit of a geek like me then you'll have heard of the Oculus Rift VR headset for 3D purposes, games not withstanding. This piece of kit has been creating a bit of a stir now in the tech world for a while, not least because of the myriad of applications that it can be used for. 

One start up software company, Vertigo Games based in the Netherlands, is developing an online multiplayer dive game using the Oculus headset to create a truly immersive experience. Check out the video!



"World of Diving is the first online multiplayer diving game, with which we will recreate that feeling of wonder and discovery you get at the bottom of the ocean. Our team is all set to take you on the otherworldly experience that is World of Diving - all from the comfort of your own (hopefully quite dry) home."

"Starting out in the Caribbean, you can enjoy the real-world diving spots that were recreated by our team, while the entire world’s oceans are waiting for you to explore thanks to a technique called procedural generation."

"While World of Diving will appeal to both hardcore simulation fans and casual diving enthusiasts, we feel it is important to focus our development efforts on making the world fun… and not just a mathematical model. World of Diving will be a place for you to hang out with your friends - whether you have met them in or outside of the game – where you can swim with sea turtles, hunt for the great white shark or party on your own luxury yacht."


If this has you salivating at the mouth, then stop by their Indiegogo website and donate some money to get this project of the ground.
