They strapped a VR tracking device to their cat so they could play video games with it
The future is feline.
A game studio called Triangular Pixels strapped a Vive VR tracker to a cat with a little cat jacket, coded a matching digital cat into virtual reality, and now the cat can follow players around inside VR, the Verge reports.
The software “detects cats standing up, walking around, sitting down, and lying down,” and plays animations to match.
The aim is to give players a warning of unpredictable pets/children when they enter the space, and the potential to of course – actually see their companion in games.
You can also watch five minutes of the cat’s avatar obliviously wandering through deathtraps in Triangular Pixels’ game Unseen Diplomacy below.
Cats in VR? Is this where the future is heading?
