The 'CastAR' headset is a new VR accessory that helps bring classic board games into the 21st century. For those who are looking for a way to relive their favorite games, this headset provides a high-tech solution.
The CastAR headset premiered this past week at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. During the demonstration, the headset was used to bring the game of Battleship to life. This feat is achieved through the use of a computer, mat and glasses that work in conjunction to produce 3D images. Unlike other VR accessories that transport the user into a completely immersive 3D world, the CastAR headset is designed to supplement real world gameplay. This allows users to retain the tactile experience associated with playing a board game, while still facilitating more immersive gameplay.
