Flight simulators have finally reached a graphical fidelity where it can be hard to tell the difference between the game and real life. Graphics cards are also reaching a point where these experiences can be run at high resolution and with extraordinarily high frame rates. This combination makes them perfect for virtual reality, and that’s reflected in a significant rise in combining the two. Pimax is announcing a seminar where VR experts are going to get together to talk through how VR changes the overall experience, how ot overcome issues with VR (e.g. motion sickness, how to interact with hardware controls like a HOTAS), what kind of hardware you might need, and any tips and suggestions they can suggest for how other simulators can use virtual reality to raise the level of their game.
Best of all? You get a reward for watching it.
We’ve talked about Pimax and their trade-in program previously, and now they are offering an additional 10% ON TOP of the existing promotion for the Pimax Vision 8K X (our review) and 5K Super (our review). Here’s a quick look at who will be presenting at this event:
