Guy Creates Annoyingly-Cool Game on Nintendo’s Virtual Boy
Gabriel Roşu / 3 years ago
Nintendo’s Virtual Boy has been a failure into virtual reality gaming since it got released, but twenty years after it hit the market, someone finally found a way to spice things up with it.
Hackaday stated that designer Joe Grand bought a broken Virtual Boy a few years back at Portland Retro Gaming Expo. He didn’t have a clue what to do with it, so he took upon himself to learn about facial recognition and image processing using OpenCV.
Grand then adapted the BeagleBone Black Linux to work with the console and created “Moustache Mayhem”, a game which players score ‘mojo’ by holding moustaches over your friends’ faces.
While the game depends on modern hardware, Grand did succeed in making an experience that could be compared with the era of 3D Tetris and Galactic Pinball.
