The Cloud VR

The Cloud VR is a quick experiment about virtual reality in CRYENGINE.

Since 3.8.1, the engine officially support Oculus Rift. I've been experimenting VR since the beginning of Oculus with the DK1, and I think, if the technology is correctly used, it could be a great evolution about how we consume media. It could change education, culture, cinema, video games... So many fields can benefit of it. So I just wanted, with this small demo to check the tech side, all the console variables, some tips about performances, the way our eyes understand volumes and distance.

There is nothing to do in it, I don't have time to make it interactive, even if I have few ideas. This was actually made a saturday night in 2 hours.

My inspiration for this project is the latest work of Charles Pétillon at the London's Covent Garden.
