🎮 Try out the newbie experience! Trial of Sword Art Online MR mode (Meta Quest 3 with Tutorial)

The editor bought a Meta Quest 3, which is my first VR helmet. As a newbie, I wanted to try a different genre of games, including Sword Art Online. Some people are worried that using VR headsets will cause dizziness, so it is better to understand the real situation before buying.

Compared with the previous generation, Meta Quest 3 is thinner and lighter, and the helmet and handles have become thinner. Quest 3 features a color transparency mode that provides a more immersive and rich entertainment experience. Although wearing a helmet may be a bit troublesome, there is no problem if you wear it correctly, and I have gradually gotten used to it.

And Quest 3 adds TruTouch function, which can be controlled without a handle. Sometimes some buttons don't trigger correctly and sometimes they don't respond, which really needs improvement. TruTouch functionality is a must, a feature Apple has had as a competitor since the Microsoft HoloLens.

When I tried playing Sword Art Online, did I feel the same as in real life? Let’s take a look at the demo anchor’s demonstration! I tried playing Kirito against monsters. It’s my first time trying out the game and I’m not familiar with space scanning. The monster was on the stool behind me, which was really awkward to play outdoors. When playing the game indoors, another monster comes out. It feels very good. When the swords collide with each other, the vibration and collision sound of the hand switch are what ordinary game machines can bring to you.

Next comes the free shooting game. Spatial scanning uses the Quest 3's sensor and can scan the indoor environment in about ten seconds. If the room is too small, you can go outside and play. A more realistic experience is to wear VR glasses. The game has started and this shooting game is very fun. A perfect combination of mixed reality and shooting games, it is suitable for both adults and children. No dizziness issues.

Z Race is a speed game, but I started to feel dizzy. The VR dizziness problem is caused by the incoordination of visual and physical reactions. The image refresh rate is also important and will affect the smoothness of the animation. I believe that VR, MR and AR will be widely used in games, daily life and the metaverse in 2024.
