Ocu­lus R ift

Australian T3 - - OPINION -

Vir­tual re­al­ity is of­fi­cially hot again, so it’s only right the Kick­starter hit that fu­elled the resur­gence is warm­ing its hands in the glow. The lat­est it­er­a­tion of Ocu­lus VR’s pro­to­type Rift head­set, co­de­named “Crys­tal Cove”, not only de­liv­ers a 110-de­gree field-of-view 3D world, but now utilises a cam­era so you can ac­tu­ally in­habit 3D space/feel less nau­seous. Epic shoot ’em up Eve Valkyrie still reigns the gam­ing demos, but NASA is plan­ning to cre­ate walk­ing tours of Mars, too. $tbc, ocu­lusvr.com, out sum­mer
