What if Nintendo's quality of life product is... VR?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What if Nintendo's quality of life product is... VR?

So I was just watching a video from Reviewtechusa. He talked about an old woman with terminal cancer. This woman couldn't do much more than sit or lie down. She got to try the oculus rift. Using the VR headset they showed her the "outside," and let her walk simply using a controller. She got to do something she couldn't have done using her own body.

 

So it got me thinking. Nintendo has been doing VR before. What if VR is this "quality of life" platform? Think about it. They could offer tours, much like they already have done with the Wii U using the gamepad to look around, they showed us with google street view as well that we can experience the world in 360º using technology now. The market is there. Not only could it be used for those incapable of walking outside, but it could be used for "tourism" as well, not everyone have the money to visit the fjords of Norway forexample. This could be a cheap fix for that.

 

Now for the questions: Is this crazy? Yes. Did you see it here first? Yes you did! :D

 

What's your take on my "predictions?"

They said it's gonna be non-wearable, and you have to wear stuff to use Virtual Reality.



Seems to me Facebook / Oculus would already have a big leg up on something like that.

Since you wear a VR headset, it doesn't quite fit being "non-wearable" tech.

My best guess is that it's actually robot that takes your blood sugar and plays games with you. I'm serious.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

Implemented in your brain :) or does that still count as wearable?


Wth is non-wearable supposed to mean anyways.  Maybe holodeck? You cannot wear it because its a complete room  but it will for sure increase anyones quality of life!

Lol, I forgot about that part.

 

Then I'll change the statement. Non-wearable VR it is! xD

 

I mean, someone has to do that as well. Think of it as a mix between 3DS, oculus and Google Street View.

I'll tell you what increased my quality of life though; a lawnmower tractor! Makes everything much better.

Maybe they are opening up their love hotels again! xD

I think you might be on to something.

After thinking over what you said, I have the following question: If they made it as an arcade machine for hospitals, clinics etc. would that be concidered wearable? I don't think so.

That's honestly a not too far fetched answer. Then again nothing is, as we have almost nothing to go on other than it not being wearable and it most likely being centered around health or education stuff. Which can be literally anything.
