Interkosmos

Enter Zvezda, a fully interactive re-entry capsule heavily inspired by 1970’s space technology where every switch, gauge, and mechanical bit could be relevant to your survival.

Guide your capsule to a safe landing with assistance from NASA and Roscosmos, and pray nothing unexpected happens to your highly experimental Soviet spacecraft – now the centerpiece of a Cold War conflict rapidly escalating towards catastrophy.

Ultimately it’s you who must adapt on the fly, execute the right sequences and procedures, manage your power and life support systems, stay on course, and land in one piece; or discover all the interesting ways to die during re-entry.

Good luck pilot!

  • Accessible, fun & challenging gameplay. Interkosmos is unlike any other VR game to date.
  • A fully interactive and sort-of-realistic-looking space capsule that reacts to your every interaction. It’s time to become the astronaut you always wanted to be!
  • A heavy emphasis on story and humor.
  • A unique aesthetic inspired by 1970s space technology and the Cold War theme.
  • Replayability; Each successful playthrough offers about 30 minutes of gameplay, but how many ways can you find to die during re-entry?
  • A branching storyline; the fate of the world is in your hands!
  • Great sound effects, super satisfyingly clicky buttons, professional voice acting, & binaural sound design.
  • Interkosmos is made with Unreal Engine 4.

New Samsung Gear VR (SM-R322) – Better & Cheaper

Kuala Lumpur, December 31, 2015 – Samsung Malaysia Electronics proudly announces the arrival of its latest and more advanced consumer version of the Gear VR in Malaysia, an improved and more ergonomic version of the Innovator Edition for S6 that was launched earlier this year.

Boasting a ground-breaking virtual reality (VR) technology packed in a lightweight wireless headset, Samsung has now extended the Gear VR’s compatibility to include the Galaxy Note5, Galaxy S6, S6 edge and S6 edge+ with an affordable retail price of RM459 (including 6% GST) / ~US$109.

“Samsung has been at the forefront of delivering mobile experiences and the new Gear VR is no exception. We see virtual reality as the next computing platform, and this time we are making immersive VR entertainment more accessible and affordable for customers with the introduction of our improved Gear VR,” said Mr Lee Jui Siang, Vice President, IT & Mobile Business Unit, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

Leveraging on the super AMOLED display of its complementing devices, the new Gear VR gives a whole new meaning to immersive video experience and virtual gaming reality – providing sharp colours, supreme clarity and unrivalled performance for an amazing virtual reality experience.

The Samsung Gear VR is 19 percent lighter than the previous Gear VR Innovator Edition for S6, and includes new foam cushioning for added comfort. In addition, the new Gear VR’s improved touchpad provides greater control while enjoying the robust selection of film, gaming, 360 degree video and experiential content available for Gear VR.

The Samsung Gear VR is offered in Frost White and is available in 28 selected Samsung Electronics Stores (SES) nationwide.

Oculus CV1 & HTC Vive Virtual Reality Test Drive

Earlier this month, we attended an exclusive NVIDIA event in Singapore. The event started with a briefing on how NVIDIA was going to deliver near real-time ray tracing to the masses, with a demo of that capability on an NVIDIA Shield tablet.

As a bonus, we were also given the opportunity to try out not only the Oculus CV1, but also the HTC Vive, virtual reality headsets. As the software being demonstrated was still under embargo, we could not take any pictures of the display. But we still managed to take videos and pictures of the experience. Check them out!

 

The Oculus CV1

This is likely the same Oculus CV1 + Xbox 360 controller setup they used at E3. We had a few minutes to try out some of the titles they prepared – Edge of Nowhere, EVE Valkyrie, AirMech VR, etc.

The experience was amazing although we can see that virtual reality is still not ready for prime time. The Oculus CV1 still did not have sufficiently high resolution to be really immersive. The headset itself, while reasonably light, was still cumbersome and it can get a little steamy inside. Although the cable was not noticeable once you start playing, we like the freedom that a wireless solution like the Samsung Gear VR offers.

The biggest problem was the controller. The Xbox 360 controller was, perhaps, not the best controller for these games. Or maybe I’m just too used to PC gaming. During the test drive, we needed “outside” help to realign our orientation. Perhaps a dedicated button on the headset to realign orientation would be useful.

 

The HTC Vive

NVIDIA set up two rather large HTC Vive booths, each with a HTC Vive headset and a lighthouse system inside. We got to experience a slew of virtual reality experiences and apps over 20 minutes. We also got to try out the Chaperone safety system, which warned us whenever we come close to the wall.

The HTC Vive was amazing. Although it looks heavy, the headset was quite comfortable. It was immersive and fun to use. The controllers were quite intuitive to use although they obviously do not allow for precise control. The Chaperone system also worked very well, warning us when we approached a wall.

However, we were a little frustrated by the cumbersome cabling. Even if you don’t actually trip over the cables, you “feel” them get in the way when you walk all over the room. That kind of disrupted the experience.
