Virtual Reality - Is it close to the reality yet?
« on: January 11, 2017, 02:51:51 AM »

I wonder how many people have seen this before - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TM4nY1utZo
It is a mouth-watering opportunity to face James Anderson without the fear of being lying on a hospital bed due to a head injury. I wonder if any of you folks have seen it first hand and is it going to be the norm in the future for players training?

It is a long way off being useful for serious training but a nice novelty for the fan as they say

The future of Cricket games in the home. Imagine that with PS4 VR.... And the improvement it would make in technique etc for amateurs...!

Can only see it getting better and being fun for amateurs to get a feel of the pace and reactions needed to face an international bowler

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.

A gun is no more dangerous than a cricket bat in the hands of a madman.

I work in VR technologies, building Simulators etc for training using bleeding edge tech. Considering what is available right now this is easily doable (many variations of it too) and results will be better than what was visible in the video.

Do you want a real ball and bat? do you want your body tracked and displayed in the virtual world etc

Being able to have a BR net in your garden against international bowlers and it accurately track all, shot timings and body would be amazing!

No quick singles as you have to bat in slippers
Constant constructive criticism because you're walking through the shot (Again)
Can only use BB kit
