NASA is experimenting with VR to deal with isolation on missions to Mars

[video=youtube;lil_I_-7aOM]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lil_I_-7aOM[/video]​

Mars is a long way from home, and the trips between here and the Red Planet could be a long, lonely time. With each one-way flight needing months and months, travelers are going to need more than a Big Book of Crossword Puzzles to while away the hours. But with no in-flight broadband and payload mass at an extreme premium, how can we keep astronauts from the psychological hazards of extended isolation in deep space?

For NASA, at least, VR presents a partial solution. NASA teamed up with Time and 8i to create a VR version of Buzz Aldrin, and gave it to participants in NASA’s HI-SEAS simulated Mars expeditions. The collaboration is called Messages to Mars. Aldrin might not be everyone’s first choice as a flight attendant, but when it comes to putting humans on Mars, he really has some ideas about how the whole thing should go down. Now he’s lending his VR presence to astronauts with an inspirational message, along with entertainer Reggie Watts, who will beatbox and crack jokes. The idea is that this technology could be used to enable immersive, meaningful interpersonal communication between Earth and astronauts on their way to Mars.

The VR component of Messages to Mars is powered by 8i, which does a thing called volumetric VR. Using 360-degree motion capture done by an array of cameras, they’re trying to do photorealistic, volumetric holograms. Aldrin’s message is already available for viewing with 8i’s bespoke app, and they’re working on compatibility with Google Cardboard. Other participants are TBD, although Time and others tease a debut for Oculus and the HTC Vive, and a partnership with Soylent for a “complete virtual reality experience” (read: the privilege of eating extremely compact nutritive powders, so it even tastes like you’re in space). All I’m going to say about Soylent is that thanks to The Martian, we all now know that protein cubes can liquefy on their way into space, causing catastrophe, so maybe let’s be careful about how that collaboration goes.

----------

SUMMARY:

"IF YOU LOVE THE TIMELESS LORE OF SHERLOCK HOLMES - PAST & PRESENT - THEN THIS DETECTIVE GAME WILL SATISFY!"

From the literature, to film and television, Sherlock Holmes has always given the most satisfying scratch for the detective itch in all of us. Enter Frogwares's CRIMES & PUNISHMENTS: SHERLOCK HOLMES. Rest assured, this is most certainly a game for players who are fans of the character, and Frogware delivers an excellent and well designed game that has a multitude of mechanics and game play elements that will keep you pushing forward to find out "WHO DID IT?". Bioshock fans will feel strangely at home with the plethora of interactive puzzles and exploration elements - and once again lovers of the classic novels and "new" television series will rejoice in the fact that the game stays true to the classic spirit that Arthur Conan Doyle penned so long ago. Price point aside, the overall product is extremely polished and will leave you wanting to purchase the latest installment - SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE DEVIL'S DAUGHTER.​

----------

THE GAMEPLAY EXPERIENCE:

Storyline, dialogue and action sequences aside, the first thing that becomes apparent is the ultra fail of using the keyboard and mouse to play. Never fear; full controller support is here! With that hurdle out of the way, the game follows a collection of cases that Sherlock solves with logic, power of observation, and an uncanny ability to envision the different aspects of each case. The game presents this in a kind of "spiritual way" - and it looks good and feels like a natural and proper way to visually present Sherlock's borderline ESP abilities. Each case has its ups and downs, but ultimately always leaves you satisfied and manifests a legitimate feeling of accomplishment. Voice acting and visual HUD is on point, and there are a ton of extra goodies along the way to collect and view when you feel like winding down from a case. Historical things feel all in their right place - wrapping up a solid product that, while the price point will stop many newcomers from purchasing, it will most certainly satisfy the loyal fan base!​

----------

STRONG POINTS OF THE GAME:

- "AAA" Quality Presentation.
- Full Controller Support.
- Game Stays True To The Classic Spirit Of Arthur Conan Doyle's Classic Detective.

----------

WEAK POINTS OF THE GAME:


- The Significant Price Point Means High Expectations That Won't Always Be Delivered Upon.
- Absence Of Multiplayer Means You Play It & Place It On The Shelf When You Complete The Game.
- Low End Rigs Can Suffer From Occasional Screen Stutter & Lower End Frame Rates.
