Virtual Parachute Accuracy Competition
From 3000 feet can you place your foot on the target?
We’ve combined the exhilaration of parachuting with an eye for accuracy. Our virtual gaming application is sure to provide limitless hours of immersive play. From home you can experience the fun of flying your virtual parachute.
Peering through your virtual reality goggles provides a 360 degree view of flight under a parachute. Look up and see your virtual parachute. Look to the left or right and your virtual hands are controlling the toggles and direction of your virtual parachute path. Look at the altimeter on your left wrist to check your altitude. Look down at your virtual self, harnessed and soaring above earth. Couple your VR gamepad and you have the control to steer your parachute.
Listen to the sound of your canopy flapping as you fly or the sound of the roaring Niagara Falls.
Friends coming over? Select the number of players and your landing zone. Think you’ve got what it takes to ace a landing right on target in New York's Niagara Falls? Next to the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon? How about Yosemite? On top of a Fjord in Norway?
Our application records each persons score: the distance from their landing point to the center of the target.
Make sure you have WiFi enabled!
Controls: Our game is controlled via Gaze/Gear VR Touchpad in the Menu Room, and with a Samsung Gamepad for Gameplay.
Menu Room: Look around to place the Gaze icon onto any menu item. To choose a place to fly, click the arrows on the left or the right of a Scene icon to rotate the carousel. Move the Gaze Icon over the number of divers to choose how many players, and then tap the Gear VR Touchpad with your Gaze icon on GO of the Scene where you want to parachute. Patiently wait a few seconds and the Scene will load!
Press the left trigger button to toggle between feet/meters for distance displays.
Push the left analog stick down to pull your left toggle down and bank (turn) left.
Push the right analog stick down to pull your right toggle down and bank (turn) right. Push both the left analog stick and right analog stick down to pull both left and right toggles down and flare to land. You may press the Back or Start button at any time to get more information about the game, controls, resume/quit, or return to Menu Room. After you land, your distance away from the target will be displayed, and after a moment it will request for the next player to take their turn.
