The screen only shows where the controller they use points, not where the players head is turned. But you will get the idea. beta version.store: https://share.oculus.com/app/affected-dk2---the-oculus-rift-horror-experience
Quote from: PabloMack on January 23, 2015, 08:59:03 amI met someone in town who is in the virtual reality business. Saturday he brought over an Occulus Rift to demo ($4K!). He had made a trip to Hawaii and had used one of those 360Hero camera rigs to record a boat trip. It was monoscopic but there is a stereoscopic version. It was my first experience wearing one of those head sets. It takes a 6K spherical video to get enough resolution for any one particular viewer's POV. With TG requiring the computing power it does to create a traditional HD video you can expect to double that to do stereoscopic and multiply that by another order of magnitude to do a spherical version. When used for rendering games you only have to generate the images as needed so the computing power required is no more than for a normal video game.

QuoteI mean Four Thousand Dollars That's what he said he paid for it (US currency)
