Oculus Rift Keeps Getting Weirder With a Full Body Bird Simulation Ride: Birdly

Now we just need a Rift port of Flappy Bird.

The Oculus Rift has the potential to let human beings experience things they never thought they could through the magic of virtual reality. It’s great when paired with a VR treadmill like the Virtuix Omni, but that wasn’t going quite far enough for the team behind Birdly. They built a machine that pairs with the Oculus Rift to make you really feel like one of our fine feathered friends.

One that’s standing in an elevator listening to Muzak, apparently.

Cheap jokes about the choice of trailer music aside, Birdly actually looks like a lot of fun. Luckily, the nature of the Rift prevents you from seeing yourself while you’re wearing it, because it also looks kind of silly if you’re not the one playing it.

No one wants to be aware that this is the reality behind their illusion:


Pay no attention to the giant robotic bird behind the curtain.
