Oculus Rift HD drops you into a world so real it hurts

Posted by aisiy on June 16th, 2013

The high-definition version of the virtual reality Oculus Rift hardware, running at a crisp Archeage Gold 1080p, sets users into a world so realistic that it's somewhat unsettling.

During a demo held at E3 earlier this week, I had the chance to test both the standard 720p and 1080p versions of the hardware running an Unreal Engine 4 demo. Nate Miller, vice president of product at Oculus, told Polygon the company is currently working on the consumer version of the HD model, and are currently working to integrate more features — like sensor technologies and face mask changes — that will be more casual use-friendly.

Using the Oculus Rift HD was like being in a lucid dream. Everything looked real, but the rocks and snowflakes surrounding me were just virtual-looking enough to remind me that the demo I walked through was an explorable version of the Unreal Engine 4 tech demo (posted below), and began in a snowy courtyard outside the crumbling ruins of a castle. Snowflakes fell all around me, and as I twisted to look in every direction I subconsciously reached my hands out to grab them.
