Count Me In: Playing Skyrim In Virtual Reality

February 3, 2014


This is a video of the folks at Cyberith demonstrating their Virtualizer omnidirectional treadmill coupled with an Oculus Rift headset and Wii-Motes. The result? The closest you can get to existing in Skyrim short of TRONing your ass in there somehow. I miss Skyrim. I lived there for over 120 hours and got the platinum trophy to prove it. I was such a badass dragons didn't even want to f*** with me anymore. I wanted to f*** with them though, so I'd chase them down and DO BATTLE. Those were the days. Now? Now I just sit at the bar telling stories about what I used to do in Skyrim. One time when I was really low-level, this giant smacked me with his club and sent me flying to my death. So then I leveled up and came back to find him. Now I have a giant's toe necklace. "Pretty sure that's a penis." Well yeah, the toes are at home. It's not exactly casual Friday, now is it?

Keep going for the worthwhile video.

Thanks to Nathaniel T, who agrees there need to be new Elder Scrolls and Fallout games ASTNAP (as soon to now as possible).

    Nice work on the Platinum trophy. You've earned your URL.

  • Matty Spinny

    anyone else like the fact that he was using a wii controller?

  • Mike

    The best thing about the Wii *is* the wii controller. Amazing little bits of kit for the money. You ever seen Wii games upscaled to 1080p with a lot of AA on a PC? They look absolutely amazing, so much better than on the actual Wii.

    I really wouldn't mind seeing this become standard for a lot of games. Then, instead of kids (and adults, for that matter) just sitting there getting fat, they could actually burn some calories.

    Except beyond this, it will be all about directly hijacking the brain, much like the matrix, just voluntarily. Then the problem won't be just about getting fat, but about muscle atrophy.

    I would use it to go running. running in real life is boring but it would be fun in the skyrim universe

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    If they get this to a mass producible level the geeks of the world will be incredibly fit and healthy. I love that we are finally getting close to the actual vr dream.

  • Isaac King

    I could never do this. I can't even stand when my NDS makes me talk to it.
