Oculus Dev-Kit
show user profile  Kajico
Anybody check this out yet?
http://www.oculusvr.com/

This looks awesome, and the cost is cheap for what it is (granted it's only a devkit). I'm half tempted to buy one just for the purpose of messing around more with A/R stuff.

I know there's a few of you game devs out there. This would be a great way to get a running start on something cool.

This + Kinect = finally true immersion?


(\/) (°,,,°) (\/) Woop woop woop!

Yeah, saw this posted by a friend on facebook a while ago. Looks pretty impressive, and with the sound backing of some major developers... exciting times ahead.

The leapnotion thing is an alternative to a VR headest? You sure?

But what are the stats on eye-strain? This is a major factor. With 3d glasses (for the cinema) tonnes of people complained of slight nausea and headaches (which I experienced as well).

Otherwise, yeah, this looks like it'll be a fun gimmick.

@nik - did I say that ?
@herfst - devkits not available to january so we don't know yet.

total immersion is not likely to be a gimmick.

Wait until your brain figures out Porn + Oculus Augmented Reality goggles. More than your nipples will explode with delight.
