PC Oculus Rift support

Discussion in 'Assetto Corsa' started by Radek Zukowski, Jan 9, 2013.

  1. Question for devs.
    Do you know about Oculus Rift? - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oculus_Rift
    If so do you plan to implement support for it?
    Dev kits should be available in march at cost about 300$.

    This would be a dream come true for a simracer.

    Something like kinnect detect your hands and your virtual hand move as your real one, you just have to push virtual switch like in the reality.

    Keyboard is complicate way to do something simple ;)

    Learn to type without looking at the keyboard, Mavis Beacon is your friend. Anyway who needs to type when racing :geek:

    Pledged for the Dev kit when it kickstarted, so my fingers are crossed.

    Just think of all the extra sales AC would get if it was the first confirmed Sim/racing title!! And it would be free publicity also for Rift and AC.

    If AC pull there finger out, they could be the first 'released' Sim title.

    I guess if AC is supporting trackIR-like input, this hardware is "just" a screen with a trackIR integrated, so no special code to do.
    Or did I miss something?
     
  10. Yes, you did miss something, from FAQ:

    Haha I can see a scenario happening where you are gaming for hours and hours while burglars literally steal everything from your house. When you remove the goggles you notice your house is completely empty :)

    On topic: amazing device, would love to try this out. How expensive is it?

    300 USD for the Dev kit, which should be out March.
     
  13. I always thought that racing and flying sims are suited for this kind of devices like no other type of games. You sit like in the real thing, you have the same inputs as in the real thing, you see everything like in the real thing. The only difference is that you don't feel any g-forces. That's why I'm very excited about any progress in this field.
    High resolution VR helmet + some sort of TrackIR device that detects your hand movement = epic epicness.

  15. Off topic but this would be perfect for married men whos wives have let themselves go. You could load up software to make your wife look like any woman you want. Problem is she wont want anything to do with your nerd ass with the goggles on. Maybe get her a pair too? Then you could have special celebrity night. PSY meets Susan Boyle anyone? Gross.

  16. boy that escalated quickly!
     
  17. I love game/product developers who are genuinely enthusiastic about their product and isn´t there simply to make money of gamers.

    Usually that shows in games/products etc.
     
  18. Yes, AC has ordered a dev. kit.
    I know this for a fact since i asked them about it.(some time ago)
    It will be shipped in March/April.
    Dont know if support will be there on day of release(AC),but the consumer version of the Rift
    will probebly still take some time so no rush.
    And i agree ,this could be a dream come true for a simracer.
    They're just so excited about it as some of us are i think.:)
