Affordable VR with Oculus Rift

I ordered one of the developer kits for the Oculus Rift VR device back at the start of April. Still no sign of it, but I don’t expect it until July in fairness, as some pre-orders going back to August 2012 still have been dispatched.

The fact is, that this device will be a game changer, and not specifically for video games, I also see this having a use in architecture and maybe engineering. A lot of high end developers and game engines companies are backing this too, such as Valve and Epic.
As soon as I get my hands on it, I will be trying it out to see if it really is as good as most reviewers are saying.
The key factor that makes this device so good seems to the it’s really small latency times, which means, the speed at which the device responds to the movement of your head. It’s really quick from all reports I have read.
I will report more when I get the device in my hands, and might even put up a video or two.

In the meantime checkout Oculus VR for more information.
