Virtual Print EP.2 What do you think?

Continuing from last week’s video. The idea I had in mind for Oculus and 3D Printing or how these two mediums will work together. Is for Oculus to recognize 3D printed objects and those object become the interactive tool in the game. Confuse? Imagine you are playing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 game. You could print a wand and the Oculus interact with the printed wand. Which then recognizes what it is and make that your tool in the game. So you would no longer be clicking your mouse to shoot spells. You would be saying the spells and casting it from the wand. Giving the game a more realistic and immerse feeling. I then interviewed some people on this idea and see what their responses are. At the end of the video I had try to create this idea by using photoshop the interviewers into games and using 3D printed item as their interaction tools. The games that were featured are:

  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
  • Skyrim
  • Star Wars

As a conclusion. This idea is still at its beginning stage and does have its limitation but from the responses from the interviews there is an interest in this idea. How will it continue to expand and change gaming, even communicating with others tune in next week for another update. Thanks!
