No liking or sharing unless you get it within 5 seconds.  10 seconds if you were born before 1970. No comment thread spoilers please.

Daniel Suarez (author of Daemon, FreedomTM) discusses his trial of the Oculus Rift HD prototype.
 
Oculus Rift (HD Prototype)

Last week I got a chance to try out the latest Oculus Rift VR headset. The demo ran through an UnReal 4 engine test with plenty of fire, volumetric smoke, shadows, etc. The HD Rift is really impressive! It would certainly make FPS's and sims like Arma III much more immersive and natural. Thanks +Antonio Rodriguez of Matrix Partners & +Laird Malamed of +Oculus Rift for the demo!  #VR
