GE in conjunction with Reel FX have created a rather nifty train and helicopter experience to celebrate GE's new Tier 4 train.
Tier 4? Yeah, I didn't know what that was either. Tier 4 trains meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) stringent Tier 4 emission standards which means the new locomotive will decrease emissions by more than 70 percent from Tier 3 technology. All sounds very impressive - as is the VR video in this demo and VR video takes a lot to impress me. Most VR videos are a pain to setup, have compression problems and generally look like poop (figuratively)
GE Tier 4 Locomotive - Setup & Controls
- Download the demo and expand to folder
- Ensure your rift is in Direct Mode
- Run GE_VR_DirectToRift.exe
- Simply look at the menu option representing the video you wish to view for a few seconds
Easy. The way VR Video should be and I hope other VR Vendors take note!
