Geile Idee. Das körperliche erlebte Gefühl einer Achterbahn mit einer völlig anderen Optik unter einem Oculus Rift zu kombinieren: VR Coaster. Guck mal, da fliegt ein Drachen!
In February 2014, I approached the german roller coaster manufacturer Mack Rides with the idea of extending a real roller coaster by wearing an Oculus Rift headset during the ride. I was wondering if it would be possible to replace the real environment by a synchronized virtual ride.
At Mack Rides, they also saw the potential and entered this ground-breaking cooperation project with me and my students, providing us two roller coasters for research and testing (I’m working as a professor at the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern).
