WATCH: Dragon Ball Z VR headset lets you shoot a ‘kamehameha’ — it’s over 9000!
For those who grew up watching the Dragon Ball Z anime series, admit it, you spent a good time of your childhood pretending to do a “kamehameha” with your friends.
Modern virtual reality technology will now be bringing this childhood fantasy to life, in a manner of speaking.
Toy company Mega House will soon be releasing a “Capsule Corporation” branded VR headset that works with a Dragon Ball Z VR experience app. The headset works by inserting a smartphone into its front panel. It also comes with a pair of hand sensors, as well as a VR mat.
Apart from firing off a virtual “kamehameha” with Goku himself, the app also comes with a “Scouter” function for AR use.
Kotaku reports that the BotsNew Characters VR Dragonball Z bundle will be released in Japan by June for 12,000 yen (roughly P5,500).
Playing with it is guaranteed to make you look quite like a dork, so it’s advised that you use it with like-minded people. Or behind closed doors. Alfred Bayle/JB
