Gaming just went to a whole new level.
Loke Uei Tan, a self proclaimed geek and USPSA shooter, spent a few months developing a virtual reality shooting simulator for the Oculus Rift.
Dubbed the ‘Practisim VR,’ the software’s goal is to provide competitive shooters with the ability to stay sharp in the off months when weather may make it impractical to train.
“The aim was the simulate the sport of USPSA, IPSC, Pro-Am and Steel Challenge so that shooters can use this during the winter season or as dry-fire practice,” said Loke. He has submitted Practisim to Steam’s Greenlight to make it available via Steam for purchase/download.
Whether training for competition or tactical missions, virtual reality setups like Loke’s will eventually be commonplace. With the obvious benefits of safety, logistics, realism and cost, VR and the firearms industry are bound to collide in a big way in the near future.
