I didn’t think I was one to get motion sick, but this projector strapped to a Wii-gun is making me think otherwise. Gamer Nirav Patel decided to take first-person shooting to the next level by combining a Wiimote Zapper, a handheld ShowWX laser projector and a gyrometer to display a screen wherever his Zapper is pointing.
Patel calls it a “glasses-free virtual reality first-person shooter,” and it allows him to look around and navigate the game-world just by angling the Zapper and using its joystick. Right now, it’s all a little unwieldy as the game (an open-source FPS called “Cube”) is running off of Patel’s laptop, which his controller is tethered to. That laptop? Patel’s wearing it on his back, Ghostbusters-style.
