Zero Latency's free roaming VR room combines an Oculus Right, a computer you carry on your back, and motion sense to put players directly into games. If you get too close to a wall or another player, the game warns you with visual cues and you're not allowed to run (for your own safety), but otherwise it's like you're really inside the level you're playing.

People born after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 will never know that impact it had on those who experienced it firsthand and those who watched from around the world.

But this might give a slight glimpse into what happened that day.

A new virtual reality experience named [08:46] puts users in New York's World Trade Center as the tragic events of September 11 unfold.

The experience drops users in the North Tower moments before impact.

From the project's Oculus Share page:

Based on countless hours of research in order to try to properly recreate the atmosphere and dynamics within the top floors of the towers, [08:46] was designed and developed as a school project during three months by a six members team, working in close collaboration with two actors for mocap and voice acting.

You can download the project right here and try it out for yourself.



As the video game industry prepares for what could possibly be a massive shift in the medium, Time magazine revealed its cover story on virtual reality Aug. 6.

Unfortunately, many proponents of the new technology thought it disgraced the upcoming products and was counterproductive to get mainstream VR success.

The Internet just thought it was funny.
