A Life Changing Oculus Rift Experience

Published - 25 Dec 2014

Continuing on our series on Virtual Reality headset updates this video this reviewer looks at two demo video's. Although there are issues (with a couple of hangs) the emotional impression of the experience shows what can be expected.  (Ed: In "The Blue Marble" the demo goes as long as the chosen sound track. The users choice of music can be played in sync with the demo -once converted to an .ogg file. It may have been a corrupt sound file.)

I am backing the simulation and pleasure world will be changed by Oculus Rift and products like Project Morpheus from Sony. Microsoft has recently signed a deal for US$150m with Osterhout Design Group, a wearable tech developer, fuelling speculation that they are working on a VR heasdset of their own. You have to be encouraged when the big players weigh in with there financial might. Don't rule out other smaller tech companies like VRVANA with their product Totem.  They are claiming some major advantages over both the big players, like support for all operating systems including Consoles.
