Oculus Rift has big things planned for the near future. The potential for the soon-to-be-released virtual reality hardware is now looking beyond video games and into full-fledged entertainment.
Meet Henry, the hug-loving porcupine starring in one of Oculus’ upcoming short videos. Instead of interacting with his “pre-programmed” environment, Henry will interact with YOU. When you move around his home, filled with colorful balloon animals and birthday decorations, Henry will follow. His eyes meet yours and you begin to become part of the story and how it will play out.
This preview only scratches the surface for interactive entertainment in all age groups and is a huge leap forward to being part of the game, movie, or otherwise fully immersive experience coming to a Rift near you. See the full post on Engadget.
