Unannounced Oculus Rift Project

Get INSIDE the game…


A Fun Little Project

The idea here was to see if we could create a convincing “spectator” effect with the Oculus Rift while placing the user in a highly realistic environment. Users can spawn anywhere within the stadium and move freely via the keyboard (similar to the original “Tuscany” Oculus demo)


What We Learned

The feeling here isn’t exactly right. Sure, it feels realistic (even better with the Z-depth tracking of the Oculus DK2), but without anything grounding you to the experience, all you can really do is look around and feel like you’re missing something. We’d love to try this with a recorded spectator event…
