NVIDIA VR Funhouse Unleashes the Best of Pascal and VR (Page 1)

NVIDIA VR Funhouse Unleashes the Best of Pascal and VR

NVIDIA's first VR experience built from the ground up, VR Funhouse, is now here in reality.

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

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
