Title: STEM System

I know a lot of you already know about it and that we've posted about it before, but I don't think we made a thread specifically for it.

They just put up a few more awesome videos.

Advanced gun mechanics (mainly mags)

So movement is actually taken from positional trackers of those handles in space according to the oculus (to get rotation n stuff) ? Seems as a interesting thing and i like the gun handling. Would be interesting to see it on something like ARMA. Doe, it seems it has the evident problem of small space, but they could make a little tweak for that in open worlds. Just making the borders of the functionality space to trigger character movement in the right direction. Also, if height could be coupled whyte the function to crouch. But i would like to see those handles get a little lightweight - trying to fit the tech in some gloves would be nice. And if it could be precise enough to use some instrumentation (in cockpits, etc.), id like to see it hit OT too.

I can already imagine the stories from people who hurt themselves by not having as much room as they thought and slamming their hands into walls, knocking over lamps, accidentally punching bystanders.......

It will be almost as much of a head-shaker as all the pictures their used to be of WiMotes embedded in television screens......  ;D

No, the position is taken by the stand/base.

I like how they had the base appear in the their games.  They should have that appear in every game it's compatible with in the future at the touch of a button, even if it's just an overlay shown to the headset display and not part of the game, if that's even possible.
