Playing with the VFX1 Virtual Reality System

posted in: Misc | 0

My friend has had this VFX1 virtual reality system for around seven years. He’s been waiting to find the time to figure out how to get it working. The system was first sold in 1995 and requires some pretty old hardware to make it work.

We spent about 12 hours last weekend getting this thing up and running on an old Compaq Presario with MS-DOS 6.22. At one point we had three old computers laying in pieces, one old IBM Thinkpad from 1998, one new laptop with a USB Floppy drive, and two Nexus 7 tablets all being used to try and get this thing up and running. In the end, we prevailed!
