VR and Coffee

Two great tastes that go great together… sort of.

Check out my test drive of the Oculus Rift – my first foray into actual virtual reality in over a decade.

I’m sure the caffeine contributed to my occasional vertigo. There were some seriously unpleasant moments, especially trying to walk up the ramp in Unreal Citadel. Still, you can’t beat flying way up in the sky, better than the Second Life version! I think I lasted about ten minutes, which according to Dave, was an excellent first-timer flight time.

I’m hoping that when they release the 1920 x 1080 version the woozies will get better.

Many thanks to Dave Arendash for letting me try out the gear, and Damon Hernandez for the documentation.
