There’s an undeniable thrill in climbing into someone else’s shoes once in a while. Now climb into someone’s cockpit, jet pack, spaceship, or cute fox universe. Oculus are the people who dared to dream virtual reality (VR) would make for an exciting future, not just linger as a side joke from the 1980s. Four years in the making, the Oculus Rift is a beautifully designed piece of premium engineering that actually looks sleek, and is lighter and more comfortable than many others out there.
It’s easy to set up and use, and gives everyone access to a magical world that’s as far away from the daily grind as is possible to get from your living room. Not only to try explosive gaming experiences, but also to view movies a new way, time travel, create amazing artwork, hang out with friends, and generally lose yourself in magical worlds you won’t believe a human managed to create.
Oculus thinks a little more about the consumer experience than many tech makers. Users say they love the feeling of receiving the understated, rubberized box with magnetic opening; that it makes them feel like a world-infamous hacker. Inside, there’s the headset, containing two lenses, a gyroscope, an accelerometer, and two 1200x1080 screens. It’s impressively slick, considering it’s a bulky piece of kit, with thoughtful touches like cloth sides that make it more meekly matt than show-off shiny. You also get a slender tracking camera that tracks your head motion, a minimalist remote for simple games and controlling video, an Xbox One controller, and detachable headphones that are actually very good.
Create magical gaming stories, every day, with Oculus Home
So what games will make you unable to take the Rift off? There are quite a few, very decent exclusives in Oculus Home, the dedicated store. Start with Lucky’s Tail, a 3D platform game that’s pretty addictive. Beautiful role-playing game, Chronos, is also a favorite, as are Edge of Nowhere and Climb. And wait, don’t look at YouTube videos, the only way to see how good they really are is to strap on that headset and go down the rabbit hole yourself.
Get the full-body experience with Oculus Touch
These controllers are pretty essential Rift companions these days. Hold on tight and use them to enjoy the full potential of virtual reality: ‘room-scale VR’, where you can go beyond just looking around and clicking with your Xbox One controller. You can actually walk around, grab things, throw things, and even sculpt and paint. And, of course, you don’t have to buy them, you can get them from Grover for as short a time as a month.
The Oculus Rift headset comes with a pair of lenses, two 1200x1080 screens, a gyroscope and accelerometer, and a pair of actually very good removable earphones
