I put on my Oculus Rift for the first time yesterday and came away very impressed. After fiddling with the straps, I managed to get the headset on properly at the 9:10 mark. The first words out of my mouth were, "Holy shit." I then spend the rest of my time in the demo exploring virtual Tuscany and finding the best way to control everything. Watch me look like a crazy person at the 21:18 mark as I try and detect latency in my head movement. I couldn't. While there isn't any interaction in the Oculus World Demo, I had enough fun just walking around and getting used to everything. I found that standing up is a bad idea and walking backwards makes me feel funny. It's exciting how well this thing works and the possibilities of the future. I can't wait to play through Half-Life 2 with it!
I played the Sixense Tuscany Demo with the Razer Hydra today. It blows this away. I'll be uploading that soon!
