Smartphone + headset + finger sensors = virtual Kamehameha
Japanese toymakers Megahouse hope to capture the market at the intersection of nerd nostalgia and cutting edge technology with a new virtual reality device designed to propel its users into the fantastical world of Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball Z manga and anime.
The "BotsNew Characters VR DRAGON BALL Z" toy includes a head piece and a pair of finger-mounted sensors. When combined with a smartphone and the accompanying software, the device allows wearers to experience throwing virtual Kamehameha blasts, exploring the scenery via a flight simulator, or using an AR "Scouter" to check the power levels of nearby people.
The "BotsNew Characters VR DRAGON BALL Z" is scheduled to be released in late June of 2017. It retails for 12.960 yen ($119.28 US).
