This week our lecturer brought Oculus Rift in class. I must say Oculus Rift is easily one of the coolest pieces of technology I’ve known so far.

So what is the Oculus Rift? It’s a virtual reality headset that allows players to step inside games or apps and completely immerse themselves in a virtual world.

Basically everyone in class has 5 minute to experiment this realistic looking apartment. The apartment was amazing, modern style with big glass windows around, marble top kitchen, art room and everything. You can walk around by focusing in a little camera icon. Then the second one was a roller coster. This one was awesome. It feels like I was on a real roller coster, with all up and down movement. However, I got a bit motion sick after, it takes couple minutes to balance myself out. Maybe it was just too real. Here’s a video that I found on youtube to demonstrate how does it feel when you on an Oculus Rift Roller Coaster. Check it out!
