One of the biggest things in the world of virtual reality has been the development of Oculus Rift. While it still has yet to hit the market, it is going to soon, and it is sure to be a huge hit. Alongside the Oculus Rift, you will find the STEM System, which has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a new gaming tool that is only going to improve the world of virtual reality gaming. Let’s take a closer look at what it is, how it works, and how you can help them reach their goals!
What Exactly is the STEM System?
First, we will look at what the STEM system actually is. It is a product that is going to help make the gaming world more immersive, putting people into the game- like it was real life! It can be used with PC, Linux, and Mac programs, and it can be used to track your position in the games- with 5 points placed on the body.
It is made up of the following:
- STEM UNITS
- STEM base
- STEM controller with analog joystick
- Buttons and Bumpers
- STEM Pack for legs, torso or head
As you can see, it really is going to expand your capabilities when playing virtual reality games.
How it Works with the Oculus Rift?
The Oculus Rift is about to hit the stores in January, and believe it or not it will actually give players the ultimate gaming experience. They will be able to use their headsets to see their movement and their surroundings, but they can use the STEM system to actually move about throughout the game with ease, making it easier than ever to maneuver your character.
Progress Toward the $250,000 Goal
Oculus Rift had a lot of success and a great start on their Kickstart campaign, as they were able to reach their complete goal within just hours of starting up the campaign. This is really impressive, but it goes to show how many people stand behind the product and what it has to offer. STEM is hoping to get a lot of success with their Kickstarter campaign as well. They started out and were able to reach $150,000 in just a few hours after they started. Their goal is just $250,000, which means that they were over 60% of the way there hours after starting up. It goes to show that there are a lot of people out there that really have high expectations for the gaming industry, and they believe that these companies are going to be able to meet those expectations or exceed them.
As you can see, the Kickstart campaign is just the start. If they are anything like Oculus VR, they will be well on their way to developing a product that will offer them exactly what they are trying to create over the next couple of years. It is just a matter of time before gaming is changed for good.
