Unreal Engine’s latest innovation is about building games while inside virtual reality

Epic Games is unveiling a new virtual reality edition of its Unreal Engine game-development tool today that enables you to create a video game from within VR.

“This is a huge simplification of the process,” Sweeney said. “You can directly manipulate things, like a Minority Report approach. This is the way everything will go, and it will go very quickly, given how fun it can be compared to a computer and a mouse.”

…I just don’t know, if that is true… Probably have to try it first. From the video I would say there is no way to actually do something productive with it. And I am not sure that it is more time efficient than a mouse…

But maybe, that is only a matter of familiarisation. At least the “cursors” seemed to be rather stable… So, I would really like to try it 😉

“Minority Report” only worked because Tom Cruise moved his hands like he knew/was instructed” the things on-screen would move!
That were only gestures so imprecise, no UI could fantom what to do…
