Coolest gaming gear – Try the Oculus Rift at DreamHack

Earlier today we had the chance to try the uber-cool Oculus Rift at the Komplett booth in DreamExpo. It took a little while to get used to, but it was so cool being able to look around inside a game, sideways, up, down, and the image changed like it would in the real world.

The “game” on display was a rollercoster ride in a big castle just by the sea, awesome scenery.

The hardware

The Virtual Reality-headset Rift from american Oculus was surprisingly lite, and image quality good even though this was a developer kit with only 1280×800 (640×800 per eye). The consumer version will have 1920×1080.
