While gaming in 3D seems like a cool idea, it's not hard to make the point that it hasn't quite been done great just yet. Well, the cleaver dudes over at Oculus are looking to change all that with their "Rift" headset.
The Rift headset features low latency head tracking combined with an extremely wide field of vision. The resulting effect leaves you looking at nothing but the game world, and allowing you to look around with extreme precision just by moving your head.
The creators of this headset raised over $2 million dollars on Kickstarter to build the developer kits which they are now sending out to developers. While it may still be a while before a consumer version is available, Oculus assures that it's on the way after they receive feedback from the creators who are working with the development kits.
The Oculus Rift has received endorsements by John Carmack and Gabe Newell, among others, and it's not hard to see why. Check out the demo video below to get a better idea of the potential this thing has.
