Over on the Extreme Windows Blog, Gavin Gear gets to play with some pretty awesome technology, and through a recent post, he tells you all about trying out a fully functional developer kit called Oculus Rift, which costs just $300. Kits like this can be used to try out virtual reality experiences and develop games and other apps that use VR technology.
He shares his hands-on experiences with the Oculus Development Kit and SDK, Oculus-supported DirectX games and also discusses the underlying sensor technology that makes these new experiences possible.
As he explains, “I had a lot of fun with Oculus and Euro Truck Simulator 2 and I’m looking forward to trying out more DirectX games with Oculus Rift. There are so many different ways to use this technology and I’m curious to evaluate how different games take advantage of it. PC games and simulations are definitely going to get even more interesting in the next few years!”
To get all the details on Gear’s initial review of Oculus Rift, head on over to the Extreme Windows Blog.
