In the gaming world there are few pieces of hardware with more hope or promise then the Oculus Rift. The Oculus rift is a head mounted virtual reality display that creates a 3d environment that is perfect for gaming. After a successful Kickstart launch they introduced the DK1 development kit for programmers to start making compatible with software. A year later the DK2 was released and better graphics, a better display and headset and better overall performance. The units were still only being sold to developers and keeping them out of the reach of the general public.
I was able to track down a Oculus Rift DK2 and take it on a test drive with Live For Speed in a F1 car. This video captures some of my impressions while using Oculus in racing and to see if the technology holds up to the high demands of us racers. I want to thank CXC Simulations for giving me access to their facility, their full motion simrig, and their Oculus Rift for this test drive.
