That’s what is being anticipated with the new Unity plugin to help developer address the problem of VR sickness that has caused many players to pack up their headsets and other associated virtual reality paraphernalia and consign them to the highest shelf possible.
Last Christmas saw a great many VR packages sold, especially the package that Sony had for its PS4, and like many I was delighted to get one as a gift only to find that after a short period I began to get hot and develop nausea and a headache. The worse thing was that these symptoms did not reduce they actually intensified as time went on, ruining my day.
Such a disappointment was experienced by many people, and even though I have tried some tips to alleviate the symptoms, I am wary to play for too long, just in case.
If you are like me and numerous others and love experiencing new technology then learning of a plugin that would enable VR users to play without having the distressing symptoms of simulation sickness is greatly welcomed.
VR Tunnelling Pro, or VRTP actually allows developers to introduce a few tools that should reduce simulation sickness in users. The plugin has presents that let the user further adjust their experience making it more comfortable, and of course, ultimately more personal to each individual.
This means that the peripheral vision can be darkened, or blurred, or a ‘cage’ can be placed there that convinces the brain that motion is not happening at all, which is one of the major reasons that simulation sickness occurs.
VRTP supports all the major virtual reality platform and there is also a version available for mobile VR use.
It’s actually refreshing to see that VRTP is available for the mobile user and has not been developed exclusively for the console players, as many of us use our mobiles for most things online. In fact, to lose a mobile device can end up turning into a minor disaster.
Personally, I use my smartphone more for sourcing games and the game I am currently right into is mobile bingo, and before you think that I must be of a certain age, you might be surprised how popular online bingo is with the twenty-something age group.
When I was asked to try mobile bingo games by a good friend I did not expect them to tick a few of my ‘need to do’ boxes, so I was pleasantly surprised. Online bingo sites offer a great chat feature when you can catch up with family and friends, as well as make new ones if you like, and all this goes on alongside playing some fun games.
You will find that majority of sites also offer a great selection of other popular games that are optimised for the mobile, so there is no need to go looking for another site to play at, and of course you can also take advantage of the bonuses and promotional offers that will be there for you to enjoy but remember to read all terms and conditions before opting into anything.
Today the chat was about VR and what people do to avoid it as much as possible, let’s just hope this new plugin does what it says on the packet!
