High School Students Create Virtual Reality 'Overwatch'

The Blizzard team shooter played with a headset, a harness and a gun controller

Gyeonggibuk Science High School

South Korean high-schoolers have done what a lot of game developers have only talked about and created a virtual reality set-up for Blizzard's team shooter Overwatch.

Gyeonggibuk Science High School's science club SADA used a combination of a VR headset, a harness (which the player leans into to move), a gun controller and Arduino, an open-source prototyping platform that lets users create interactive electronic objects.

This playthrough shows the character Soldier: 76 but the students have also demonstrated the system using tank hero Reinhardt.
