Technically, the Oculus Rift is a virtual-reality headset that’s built into your computer.
But when it comes to creating a virtual arcade for a VR experience, you’re going to need some sort of hardware to make the experience.
That’s what the developers at Virtual Arcade are trying to address with a prototype VR arcade for the Oculus rift.
Called the “Oculus Arcade,” the prototype has a VR display that can be placed anywhere you like.
When you sit down, the display will be turned on so that you can look at a menu of VR options.
When you’re not in a VR arcade, you can still watch a movie in a normal VR environment, but you can also interact with virtual arcade cabinets, complete with a joystick and buttons.
The developers also plan to add a VR bar to make it even more immersive, but the prototype is a placeholder until they get a final product that works with the Rift.
The Oculus Arcade is just one of a few virtual arcade prototypes in VR that’s being tested at the company’s offices in Seattle, WA.
Other prototypes include one in New York City and another in San Francisco.
A demo of one of the VR arcade prototypes is available for free to interested VR arcade owners.
