PrioVR Looks to Be Non-Starter for Hands-On Experience
It looks like Yeti Technology's Kickstarter project is not going to hit its target unfortunately. They were looking to create body sensors, which could be used to interact with a virtual world. The idea was to position sensors on various parts of the body, much like they do with motion capture for actors, so that in-game movement copied yours. This coupled with something like Oculus Rift, could have meant full immersion within a virtual reality world.
With 66 hours (a little under three days) left to go, the project has only raised $96,784 of the required $225,000, so not looking good. I am guessing that the world is still not catching the bug for the use of motion controls within a game. Just imagine the possibility of these motion sensors, used for adult entertainment maybe? Imagine feeling up your favourite adult actress, or actor, hey I am not judging. Let us know below what your thoughts are.
