Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire to use IKinema Full-Body Tracking
Playable at The VOID locations, this new Star Wars experience looks like the best yet.
We’ve all wanted to be a Jedi at some point, and some of the less reputable among us have even wanted to be a Sith; thankfully, that dream is closer to reality than ever before thanks to The VOID, and their hyper-reality experience that is Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire.
Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire is a full-body virtual reality (VR) experience that will take users into the Star Wars universe like never before, with untethered VR technology that will let players truly feel part of their favourite universe.
You’ll be able to play Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire in two spots in the USA, Orlando, Florida and Anaheim, California, while anyone looking for a UK location will be able to find it at London’s Westfield.
IKinema’s technology has already been used in many VR videogames and applications, with the team at Supermassive Games using the full-body movement tech in their latest projects. The procedural animation software helps characters move more naturally in VR, with minimal intensive hands-on development time.
“IKinema’s technology is all about delivering top quality results enabling developers to create amazing experiences for their audiences,” said IKinema Founder and CEO, Alexandre Pechev.
“IKinema is a great partner to The VOID as we create the elements needed for an immersive, believable and engaging experience,” added The VOID’s Head of Technology, Farrell Edwards. “Accurate translation of a person’s physical movements in real-time is crucial to generate the kind of immersion that allows someone to believably assume a new identity and suspend reality. Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire delivers on that promise of immersion with the help of IKinema’s incredible full body-solving technology.”
Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire is looking to be one of the most exciting and interesting VR experiences available. Budding Jedi should take a look at The VOID website for more information and where and when you can experience a galaxy far, far away. For everything else on VR and technology, stay on VRFocus.
