Star Trek – The Bridge of the USS Voyager with Oculus Rift
Oculus Rift always seems to be breaking boundaries. Its latest project allows you to visit the USS voyager bridge from Star Trek. It has been designed for you by indie game developers so you can experience the sensation of being in the Star Trek control room and operate the three audio triggers. The triggers apparently play the clips from the show of the ghost crew. With Oculus Rift strap-on VR headset and a pair of headphones, you can venture virtually through the bridge and explore it.
It is the very first Oculus Rift demo that has used the Epic’s Unreal Engine 4. The engine is available on the website with a monthly subscription fee and is easily accessible to everyone who can pay the fees. The developers of the game advise that users put on headphones for better audio immersion. Remember, if you wish to release photon torpedoes, just press the ‘e’ key.
The man behind the game is Thomas Kadlec. When Road to VR asked him about Epic’s Unreal Engine 4, Kadlec said “I almost have the sensation of being a ‘movie director’ when working with Unreal Engine 4. I can come up with an idea and in a matter of minutes you can come up with an implementation that looks really amazing.”
With Oculus Rift, you can have an amazing immersive experience in the iconic ship. The demo allows players to explore the USS Voyager’s bridge, walk around and check out the ship’s aesthetics up close. During the exploration, you will come across several events that take place in the original story and they will transpire from inter-ship communications to launching a salvo of heavy ordinance. The only downside of the game is that it is not very interactive. However, it is exciting to see the universe of Star Trek being brought back to life by the high end technology of virtual reality. Buy the demo of the game and stroll around the bridge of Star Trek‘s USS Voyager as a Starfleet officer.
