Sony demonstrated working prototypes of its PlayStation 4 virtual reality gaming headgear, code-named Project Morpheus, at the Game Developers Conference at the Moscone Center.
We received a quick hands-on demo, which showed the device has the potential to become the immersive virtual reality experience that technologists have tried to create for decades.
The demos took us on a dive into shark-invested waters and to face a knight and a dragon in some medieval land. And in both cases, the virtual almost instantly felt real.
When, or whether, Sony and game developers can make Project Morpheus a real consumer device remains to be seen, but a Sony executive said the headgear won’t be ready for the public this year.
