SEGA VR

 

 

Pretty cool looking Virtual Reality system by Sega. Back in the early 90's "Virtual Reality" was one of those buzz-words that everyone was throwing around. Right around this time is when computers started moving some decent polygons and games like Virtua Fighter, Doom, and Decent appeared. This system was designed around the first person shooter/adventure game (and even appeared in the Spike Lee movie "Clockers" with a game called "Gangsta") but the executives in the Sega corporate hierarchy were too afraid of people wearing it and wandering into traffic or walking off cliffs, so it got canned. That sucks. This thing would have been dope. There are supposedly working units out there somewhere as this one got up to the production phase before getting deep sixed.
