Testing the Limits with Wireless Oculus Rift

Oculus + Vizard VR Toolkit

Watch this show-and-tell video featuring the Oculus Rift HMD with Vizard VR software and wireless PPT wide-area tracking. We created a virtual obstacle course to demonstrate the possibilities of wireless Virtual Reality. This level of running, spinning, shuffling and jumping would be impossible with a traditional, cabled HMD.

With the Oculus Rift, a light, comfortable, wireless HMD for around $300, we can now change the game for VR in industrial training applications, psychological research, and consumer social interaction applications.

Video showing wireless, jumping, immersive VR!

Shown here is the WorldViz PPT optical-inertial motion tracking system covering a 45 ft x 25 ft floor. The Vizard VR toolkit and a few hours of scripting made this fun demo that shows the potential of wide-area tether-less VR.
