While it is not illegitimate to start a thread about it in Other Games, there is already one in the tech forum: Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headset
Anyone test drive one of these things yet?
Was at a tech convention yesterday, so got to demo one of there dev kits.
1) the VR is amazing, really feels like you are in there
2) The hardware is fairly lightweight, think of a swimmers mask
1) super low resolution display. Objects in front of you are very sharp, but anything in the background is super pixelated, and blurry.
Rep said the retail versions will be HD displays at 1080p, and they have a test unit they demoed recently in Germany.
2) Motion Sickness - I had no motion sickness, but the girl next to me had it very badly
I got to try Hawken ( awesome). Half life 2, team fotress 2, as well as other tech demos
Was pretty damn impressed. Future of gaming? probly not, but can see something branching off of this in the future. Such as integration with Kinect where the camera tracks what your body is doing.
Q1 2016 street date, no price yet.... looks nice though
Oculus Half Moon.... okay, this is pretty damn cool. Oculus just nailed it if this works as shown... wow!
yea, but that's with a PC, i have a good PC, i don't need another one
need Rift price only, in box (rift, sensor, xbox controller)
