Thanks to ever increasing processing power, video games have been transformed from simple 2D games into immersive and cinematic masterpieces. Despite how advanced graphics and story telling have become, the holy grail of gaming has always been virtual reality.
That technology is now one step closer thanks to a company called Oculus. They, along with some Kickstarter help, have created the Oculus Rift gaming headset. The headset uses two screen to give you the best 3-D experience possible, and the headset features advanced motion tracking to control in games cameras with your head movement.
The technology is promising enough the John Carmack, Founder of id Software and father of Doom and Quake, has thrown his support behind the project. Carmack and his team are working on an HD remake of Doom3 called Doom BFG which will support the Oculus Rift.
Developers are now beginning to create games for the headset with a potential sale date later in 2013 for the actual headset.
