NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk


Red Dwarf/AR Suite

From The TV IV
Jump to: navigation, search

The AR Suite (or Aritificial Reality Suite) is a room devoted to realistic simulations for games and other adventures. Users of the AR Suite wear an AR helment and gloves; sound and vision come through the helment; tacile feedback and hand motion are handled by the gloves. There are attachments for other parts of the body as well, even a groinal attachment.

This is not the same as a total immersion video game. Players can easily exit the game by pressing a button in the palm of their hands: by clapping.

The shuttlecraft Starbug has an AR suite.
