Using the Oculus Rift to skydive (video)

Posted on Friday, Aug 23 2013 @ 13:18 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
TweakTown came across a video of SkyDIEving, a tech demo that uses the Oculus Rift VR headset to simulate a skydiving experience.
Someone has used Oculus VR's Rift headset in quite an amazing way, hoisting themselves on a device, slapping on Oculus Rift and then skydiving using the SkyDIEving Tech Demo, as you can see below.

It looks like some awesome fun, and you can see he actually moves his hands around his head as he's 'falling' through the 'rock.'
