VR Driving in a REAL CAR - MatPat vs Donut

  • Published: 15 November 2019
  • We made a custom VR rig attached to the 2020 Kia Soul to create a "real life" driving video game lol. And we were fortunate enough to convince the king of games himself, MatPat from The Game Theorists and The Film Theorists, to come out.
    And ust like last week, the loser has to eat the spiciest chip in the world. #CARWARS

      Let's all face it, we all wanted to see this made possible. As a kid, I always wondered what it would be like driving from the 3rd person.

                                    This would be pretty cool, if you had the camera on pov of the driver, who’s wearing a blindfold and the passenger has to navigate and talk it through to the driver while the passenger has the headset on.

                                                                                              So I don't think it's illustrated very well here. As someone who uses VR frequently, I can tell how bad it is for them. They have the ability to turn their head irl but the camera image stays fixed in their headset. Just thinking about it makes me want to puke lol
