This is just an awesome display from the people at Fruit Ninja. Imagine being able to play some of your favorite games in this environment. Shoot, I would love to play Super Mario 64 or something like that using this. I'm so extremely jealous that I can't even talk right now. Just watch the video and be prepared to be impressed.

This game was made during the virtual reality workshop as a part of our media-informatics studies (FH Wedel Germany). It is pretty much a 3D clone of the smartphone game Fruit Ninja. We used the preconfigured CAVE and its SDK. The CAVE consits of synced 4 PCs and 4 duo-beamers. All is rendered over OpenGL and Chromium. Because of the tracking data (4 camera-based infrared tracking) and shutter-glasses, the user has a 3D impression. The sword sits above the Wiimote, which is only used for a haptic feedback when hitting a fruit. It is also located over the tracking-system. For physics and collisions we used Bullet Physics.

To create a realistic impression we placed the sound with OpenSL over a 5.1 sound system. When you hit a bomb the floor begins to rumble (over 2 Buttkickers). There are 3 Gamemodes.

Combos are also possible and are displayed throw 1 (combo of 3) or more chilis 😉
The game becomes more difficult, if you get more points.
