Our first look at the Oculus Rift

Oculus Rift unboxingOur friends from O’Reilly Radar brought an Oculus Rift for the salon event tomorrow night.  We got it set up this morning – on a Mac!  The number of demos we can run is limited to the Tuscany, at least for now.

We have been waiting to check it out and on first viewing the head tracking works really well, the image is not so great.  It has three different eye pieces that help adjust the depth of focus (I guess that’s the right term) but none of them seem to work very well.

Its going to be awesome to watch this technology develop and hopefully will be pushed forward with the guidance of John Carmack and the competition from Sony.
