    Holy Cow! I some Unreal Engine news popped up recently.

    Not only has the Unreal Engine been running in Firefox but a new project has popped up making use of Kinect and Unreal Engine 4.

    The Forest Project uses the Kinect 2 along with Smart TVs to create a virtual woodland to give temporary reprieve to those suffering from disease like Alzheimer's.

    There is a project page to help raise funds for it.

    Goes to show you not everything needs to involve ripping giant bugs limb from limb

    I actually consider this to be an interesting piece of news. It may not be straight up gaming news but the use of this tech for other purposes shows some foresight and innovative thinking.

    Good stuff. :tup:
