Real Life Sword Art Online VRMMO Announced

 

IBM Japan has just announced a new Sword Art Online inspired VRMMO Project called Sword Art Online The Beginning in collaboration with Bandai Namco, Aniplex several other partners.

Right now not much is known about the project, but IBM has stated that they will be using their cloud computing technology and explore the idea of Cognitive computing.  The prototype of the game is said to use motion controls in order to move in the game and beta tests will be carried out between March 18th and 20th in Tokyo Japan. 

 

 

The Alpha test will be conducted by 208 alpha testers that will be recruited in the Tokyo Metropolitan area and will be held between March 18th and 20th.  

In the trailer above we can see images of an Oculus Rift development kit, but the game is expected to make use of both the HTC Vive and the consumer version of the Oculus Rift with each devices respective motion controls. #

yes but this article and mainly tweet at the end of it left in me impression that they are making "SAO reality", which is as you said not possible with current technology.

I wanted to stress it out since I'm biased fan of SAO, sorry.Quote
