That’s right … strap on your OCULUS QUEST and go play around on the DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE field. You no longer have be tethered to a high end gaming PC! You can take the FIRST Robotics Infinite Re-charge field with you where ever you go! It’s great for getting your community engaged in FIRST!
The lead animator from the recent FRC Game animations (STRONGHOLD, STEAMWORKS, POWER-UP, DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE, and INFINITE RECHARGE) also programs virtual reality games in his spare time. So, he took the assets from the FRC Power-Up Game Animation and dropped them into VR to give you a VERY realistic view and feel of the field.
