Immersis Takes Gaming to Another Level at CES



Immersis logoVideo games have come a long way since the days of blocky bits bouncing ’round on a TV set. The unrealized dream of gaming has always been to transport the player to worlds otherwise unreachable in reality. And while gaming sound and graphics have improved dramatically, those improvements are still stuck on a flat, two-dimensional screen. French developers Immersis are working on a new projector system that brings gaming environments out of that two-dimensional state and into an entire room.

Scott spoke with Daniel from Immersis. Daniel showed off a miniature mockup of the full-sized Immersis projector and he explained that the Immersis system will consist of the full-sized version of their special HD protector that’ll work with either a console gaming system or PC to project the gaming environment onto all of the walls surrounding a player, putting that player right in the center of the action.

Immersis is launching the product thru Kickstarter and the company has already reached its goal of raising $100,000 thru the crowdfunding platform. Daniel believes that Immersis will be able to bring the projector to market by November of this year and that the retail price will be $2500.00.

Leonar3Do Virtual Reality Kit



Leonar3Do 3D Controller

This looks more like an instrument of torture than any kind of bird I’ve seen but fortunately it’s not and it’s actually the virtual reality controller from Leonar3Do‘s desktop VR kit. Andy and Courtney breathe a sigh of relief and chat to Stewart Oldroyd from Leonar3Do.

Hungarian start-up have created “the world’s first desktop VR kit”, consisting of the scary controller above, 3D glasses and three line sensors that affix to the computer monitor to track the position of the controller and the glasses. There’s a video on the company’s website that shows the system in action and it looks amazing.

The innovative part is that it’s an out-of-the-box environment which costs around $1500 rather the $10,000+ usually associated with VR systems. Currently only available for enterprise and education markets, the consumer version will arrive in late spring.
