Oculus Rift

I am super excited about the Oculus Rift. It is a Head Mounted Display (HMD) which can accurately track rotation of your head. What does this mean? Virtual freakin' Reality!

My devkit arrived in April and I've had a few months to tinker with it. I really wasn't sure what to expect, but it wasn't this. Immediately I was blown away by how well the device transported me into the game world. It really is amazing tech, and everyone I've had test it out agrees.

Gaming is entering a strange era, and players are looking for something new to amaze them. I don't think the next-gen consoles will fill that want. Something like the Oculus Rift could really take the gaming scene by storm.

Expect more Rift observations and experiments. The Malchemist Lab is just getting warmed up!
