Oculus Rift came across my radar this week, anybody heard of this? It appears to be a virtual reality gaming setup that could revolutionize the industry. And perhaps finally bring the promise of virtual reality, to reality. I guess an industry model is coming out in March with a limited # of games, but apparently it is quite impressive stuff.

The Oculus Rift, a much-hyped virtual reality headset that will be available to game developers in March, inspired yet another round of hyperbolic praise at CES this week.

Geoffrey Morrison, of CNET, compared trying on the Oculus Rift to jacking into the Matrix. “Not only was this the coolest thing I saw at CES, but it’s possibly the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,” he wrote.

Lauren Goode, of All Things D, observed that the device “makes the wearer feel as though he or she is literally living in a video game.”

Dan Nosowitz, of Australian Popular Science, gushed, “it’s impossible to really get across how world shift the Rift is. It’s exactly like we dreamed virtual reality would be.”

"The Oculus Rift changed my life. No, seriously... Virtual reality has long been the ultimate promise of technology... The Oculus Rift actually delivers on the promise, and then some. It’s really, really amazing. Truly and honestly a revelation, a trip, a rabbit hole. And I’m going in. Forever. Goodbye universe. Hello universe." – Joshua Topolsky

"There’s no debate amongst the Verge staffers —the Oculus Rift is the most revolutionary gaming experience we’ve seen in years, despite the fact that we only tested a relatively low-res prototype of the upcoming dev kit. The hardware’s simplicity belies the incredibly visceral, immersive experience that begins as soon as you strap it on. Sure, it might make you feel motion sick at first, but after trying it out, going back to playing games on a flat display seems positively archaic. It’ll be unleashed to the developer community by the end of March — we’re looking forward to seeing what sorts of native games come out of that." - – Nathan Ingraham

Leaving your house may prove difficult for the first few months.

The funny thing is that it's going to happen in our lifetimes too. We'll all end up like Quagmire after he discovered internet porn for the first time.

This is going to end up like that Bruce Willis film, isn't it?

The early version of Oculus Rift had some motion sickness issues among other things, but apparently a recent update has fixed most of the issues brilliantly. Won't be long now before it gets rolled out and from virtually all accounts, it's amazing.

It's coming ...

For some I think bathing may prove difficult.

I remember I got sick using the beta version after about an hour. You have to take breaks because your eyes aren't used to seeing the screen in the way that OR displays images.

Apparently they've fixed the motion sickness issues. In 30 years every gamer will own one of these.

Honestly, the applications are staggering. They will probably eventually use systems like this to train all sorts of occupations from the military to police and EMS, to fire, to say nothing of the porn implications.
