Virtual Reality

Virtual reality (VR) is a computer generated 3D environment that a user experiences with a device, such as a headset, that presents the envionment to the user as though it were real. The popular headsets are:

  • HTC Vive - A high end headset
  • Oculus Rift - A high end headset owned by Facebook
  • Samsung Gear - A heaset that uses a Samsung Note phone to present VR and 360 Video
  • Google Cardboard - A low end headset taking a variety of mobile phones

Stickmen has developed for all these platforms and began working with Virtual Reality in 2012, investing in the first of many VR headsets and development kits.

They developed a virtual reality wheeelchair simulation for Callaghan Innovation and the Burwood Academy for Independent Living (BAIL) at Burwood Hospital an were finalists in the Champion Cantebury Business Awards, and the New Zealand Innovation Awards as a result.

Here are a few of the VR projects that Stickmen has done since it began

Zombeeze VR

Our first VR game was an adaptation of a game we had done for mobile. It was a horror puzzle game called Zombeeze. The models were very simple but the spooky environment and the ability to fly above the board made it a unique VR experience

 

 

VR Wheelchair Trainer

The VR Wheelchair trainer was developed in conjunction with Callaghan Innovation and the Burwood Academy for Independent Living (BAIL) to assist spinal injury patients to learn how to use their power wheelchair.
