Students create Quidditch virtual reality game
The game was the brainchild of team member Matt Kula, who originally pitched the idea to his group. They went with it, and before MHacks was over the group had successfully created the game, which requires users to wear 3D goggles plugged into a computer, giving the players a bird’s-eye view of the Hogwarts stadium. Users are able to ride around the stadium on a stick attached to a Wii remote, making the player feel as though they are really flying – Kula even claims that the game can give you motion sickness! The game was awarded second place in the MHacks competition.

Although it’s unlikely that many of us will get to play Kula’s version of the game, maybe WB will be inspired by their success and release a real virtual reality Quidditch game! Would that be something you’d be excited to play? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
