The Virtual Reality of E3 2015

They call it E3 which stands for Electronic Entertainment Expo. Think of it as the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) they have each year in Las Vegas, but for video gaming. At E3, being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, some 200 companies have set up exhibits showing their newest wares. Show officials say of those 200 there are 27 featuring Virtual Reality products. That, they say, appears to be this year's show stoppers.

Richard Marks, who helped created the Morpheus goggles, says VR isn't new. It's just moved up to the next step! "But now," he says, "we can do it at a lot lower price point with a lot higher quality than we ever could. The technology has really improved. A lot of has to do with the display technology and the tracking technologies."

Adam Orth created a space epic called "Adrift" that requires you find ways to fix your oxygen system or you die. He says, "We live in a time where the technology is evolving so fast that we have access to things we never thought we'd have access to."

You can float in space or take on the same Walking Dead as on TV. And, the game's creator, Emmanual Marquez, says he wanted players to be able to see all around them adding his vision was making something that would show you a 210 degree angle of virtual life, "I wanted to create something that was exactly the same. So, you have no motion sickness. You get inside. It's immediate. Like in real life."
