I’m going to put my hands (together with my sword and shield) up and say I really enjoyed this over-the-top outrageously violent arena based combat game. It just works.
The physics of your controller movement is crisp, the hits connect and have satisfying results, it has a nice moving mechanic using your arms which is better than teleportation and helps burn a few extra calories.
There are a number of other arena based games on the HTC Vive and I’m yet to find a dud personally, but this has to rank as one of the better ones.
OrCam’s MyEye is an Optical Character Recognition wearable device which takes the picture of text and converts it into sound. It also recognizes faces and products and currently retails for 3500 dollars in America and Canada, and 2200 pounds in the UK.
It has two main parts: the combined camera-speaker unit and the computer unit which contains a rechargeable battery. In this video, the awesome Tony explains the advantages that he has already experienced.
This kind of device can have a massive impact on the life of the around 300 million people in the world who are vision impaired. I hope it becomes more mainstream and affordable.
