With the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive now out on the market, people are starting to see what VR can offer. One of the coolest experiences is to be able to experience fantasy pinball tables inside of VR. Normally pinball tables could cost thousands of dollars but Pinball FX 2 VR allows an Oculus Rift owner the opportunity to play pinball for much cheaper. The experience, while rad, still doesn’t fully stack up to the traditional experience. That’s where Jeremy Williams of Tested.com and his PinSim comes in.
Jeremy has built a “PinSim” table that allows the player to use real buttons like in a real pinball experience with tactile controls and an accelerometer nudge system! Getting mad a pinball table is really what most of the experience is about and Jeremy’s creation can give you that. I love me some buttons!
Check out the video below for a full breakdown of what he’s created.
