An inventive modder by the name of Teddy0k has hacked together a hugely imaginative virtual reality FPS demo, which pairs the Oculus Rift with the motion-tracking of the Razer Hydra peripheral.
The end result, constructed in the Unreal Development Kit, allows you to move through the environment and survive against waves of enemies, while physically taking cover by crouching behind objects.
As you can see in the video below, the body tracking allows you to lean, go prone, and even blindfire in a (mostly) realistic manner without exposing yourself.
If you have a Hydra and a Rift, or you’re keen to get one after seeing this, you can find instructions and download links over on the official Oculus forum.
