We’ve seen plenty of humorous and intriguing ideas for initiatives from Daniel Beauchamp, aka @pushmatrix on Twitter, however his newest reimagines for AR one thing that’s turn into an icon of VR design.
The concept sees blue and purple lightsabers popping out of the ends of fingers for a tabletop miniature model of Beat Saber. He tweeted three movies exhibiting completely different features of the concept which he designed with a 3D mannequin of an airplane seat and populated with Beat Saber cubes. He put all of it collectively in Unity with some visible results to carry house the concept.
In different phrases, this isn’t an actual recreation (you gained’t get the type of dexterity and low latency required to drag this off out of the present Oculus Quest’s hand-tracking), however the idea is nonetheless an intriguing depiction of a VR basic tailored to augmented actuality.
Beauchamp runs the AR/VR efforts at Shopify and over the past a number of months tweeted various videos he made — most of which have gone viral — depicting numerous ideas with the Oculus Quest hand-tracking system. You can even seize Hand Space on Sidequest if you have a Quest and need to take a look at out a few the experiments your self.
I requested Beauchamp over direct message about what he wished to discover with this newest experiment. He defined:
I believe quite a bit about how AR / VR headsets will probably be worn in public, and what varieties of video games we’ll play on the go. You’re clearly not going to be standing up thrashing about in Beat Saber whereas on a prepare. This exploration was made to see if hand monitoring + AR headsets might open up a brand new sort of gaming. Could we port a few of our favourite titles from VR into small, extra discreet playspaces? Plus I wished to really feel what it could be prefer to have lightsaber fingers.
