NVIDIA VR Funhouse Unleashes the Best of Pascal and VR

NVIDIA VR Funhouse Unleashes the Best of Pascal and VR

Introduction

 

One of the most immersive VR experiences I've had would have to be NVIDIA's VR Funhouse, which is somewhat of a celebration for NVIDIA, as it's their first VR experience built from the ground up, by NVIDIA. The company has had VR Funhouse shown off at various events, where it was used to showcase the GeForce GTX 1080 at its launch event in May.

During the GeForce GTX 1080 launch event, NVIDIA displayed VR Funhouse running on not one or even two GTX 1080s, but three GTX 1080s in SLI. There were 2 x GTX 1080s in SLI used for the actual visual rendering, while another handled all of the PhysX calculations.

 

 

VR Funhouse is one of the most immersive VR experiences you can have, and right now it's exclusive to the HTC Vive. NVIDIA is able to showcase all of the power of Pascal within VR Funhouse, showing off various physics effects, real-time lighting and shadows, and so much more. It's a room-scale experience like no other, with VR Funhouse being powered by Unreal Engine 4 - so it looks amazing, too.

 

 

Welcome to the Funhouse

 

 

NVIDIA really should have worked with P!nk, the singer, on any and all marketing on VR Funhouse... what a lost marketing opportunity! But, VR Funhouse is good enough to stand on its own legs for more reasons than one.

 

 

VR Funhouse is technology-infused virtual reality extravaganza, and includes six different VR experiences, for now.

 

  • Fire Archer
  • Balloon Knight
  • Clown Painter
  • Shooting Gallery
  • Mole Boxing
  • Cannon Skeet
