    BOO THINGS ARE COMING AT YOU

    The growth of the oculus rift is incredibly exciting, but it's totally going to explode your brain when you put it on, because we have a harder time distinguishing between virtual reality and actual reality than we previously thought. So how's this going to affect our gaming abilities? PBS Game/Show attempts to explain.

Do you also wish you lived in an apartment that transcends the rules of modern urban planning? Have we got the virtual reality program for you!

  4. You Can Play The Legend of Zelda From Link’s POV With The Oculus Rift

    Living in an 8-bit world has never been more heroic.

    The Oculus Rift can be used for all sorts of amazing things, like controlling space robots and diffusing bombs. But let's be honest with ourselves - what we really want out of virtual reality gaming is the ability to play The Legend of Zelda from a first-person perspective. That's right; you can be Link (just make sure you keep quiet).

  5. You Can Now Rent a Zombie Holodeck for Corporate Events

    There's no team-building exercise quite like a zombie apocalypse.

    The Oculus Rift is great, but it's still not quite in the realm of Holodeck-style virtual reality, because you're locked down to a computer and a controller while playing it. Australian development house Zero Latency is changing that with a room set up with motion tracking cameras, a controller/gun combo, and lots of zombies.

  6. Defuse a Bomb With the Oculus Rift in the Game Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

    Strapping a virtual bomb to your face has never been so fun.

    Sure, NASA is experimenting with the Oculus rift to control robots in space, and the Navy is doing... something with it, but let's not forget what advanced virtual reality technology's primary function is: crazy new video games. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes makes you defuse a bomb with directions from players who can't see it.

  7. NASA Playing with Kinect 2 and Oculus Rift to Control Space Robots, Working at NASA Sounds Extra Appealing

    Our robot overlords will probably look harshly upon this some day.

    "No, Mom, I will not pause this game for dinner. I'm practicing my skills for NASA." Yes, some day you may be able to use this excuse for playing video games endlessly, but only if you enjoy motion controls. NASA is experimenting with using the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and Microsoft's new Kinect to control robots in space.

  8. John Carmack Joins Oculus Rift Maker As CTO

    Virtual reality is virtually reality at this point.

    John Carmack, the co-founder of id Software who pioneered 3D graphics and the first-person shooter with Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake, is moving on to a new level of first-person gaming. It's just been announced that Carmack will be the chief technical officer for Oculus, the company that makes the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.

  9. So Now You Can Use An Oculus Rift To Pilot A Drone, Apparently

    Is there anything you can't do with a drone? Don't answer that.

    The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset is still in development mode and won't be fully compatible with your favorite video games for some time. That doesn't mean, of course, that people aren't excited for all the potential the rift has to offer -- including Intuitive Aerial, a group that hooked one of these suckers up to a drone and let it loose in the sky.

  10. It’s For Sci — No, No It’s Not: Wicked Paradise Attempts to Cross Uncanny Valley With Porn Video Game

    "A porn video game? It can't be done. Histories greatest perverts have tried -- Walt Disney, Larry Flynt, the Japanese -- but they can't do it because of the uncanny valley."

    Game developer Jeroen Van den Bosch is attempting to make what he describes as: "an adult version of Heavy Rain but completely designed for virtual reality." Something about this story enters I've-lost-all-faith-in-humanity territory, but it's hard to determine whether it's using virtual reality for porn before making a world where we can play with dinosaurs, or that it actually took someone this long to do it.
