Objects In Space is an open world stealth space trading game currently being built by Sydney-based indie studio Flat Earth Games. When I say built, I mean that literally -- to go along with the game's retrofuture, modempunk aesthetic and heavily tactile and complex interface, the team has mocked up its own real-world spaceship control panel, complete with LEDs and VU meters and missile switches.

You can build your own, too -- and I'm going to.

PAX Australia is only a few days away. And whether this is your first time, or your a seasoned attendee, working out what you'll need can be tough. So here's some of our top tips to help get you prepped.

2016 is the year that VR is actually getting good. You can click a few buttons on the internet and a Vive or a Rift will appear on your doorstep a few days later -- although you'll have to pay through the nose -- for your gaming PC, which is more powerful than ever. Or you can buy a PlayStation VR instead.

Or, down at PAX Aus in Melbourne in November, you can try all three -- in a dedicated 'VR Freeplay' area, with three-directional treadmills that let you walk around in virtual reality.
