The bat cave. No one can know about it. It's Batman's lair of perfect solitude, of secrecy crucial to his every plan and action. His survival. So of course we'll all soon be able to track our muddy virtual shoes through it. Hurrah!
Ah the Roxbury Guys sketch! It's one of the most memorable sketches (and lesser movies) to come out of SNL in the mid-90s. Now you can experience it in stunning virtual reality!
For balance kids react to technology;
Sure, taking photographs of spunky Pokemon in the wild using an Oculus Rift looks like a lot of fun—but we all know we can't mention Pokemon Snap without sighing about wanting a new game in the franchise.
There's totally a chance that Birdly, a device which simulates flying like a bird, could be an amazing experience. But that doesn't make this elaborate set-up, which includes a fan, a scent machine, and the Oculus Rift, any less ridiculous (in a good way).
I'd heard about this incident but I didn't realize there was footage of it. During Oculus Rift's 4D Game of Thrones Experience at SXSW, Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), who is afraid of heights, starts panicking a bit and quickly pulls the Oculus off her face. The virtual Wall is augmented with actual sensory information…
You've probably seen me talking about VR tech in games lately, either the Oculus Rift for PC, and more recently with Sony's Project Morpheus attracting big attention at GDC 2014.

When we think of the future of the military, we think of bigger and better weapons. Laser canons and the like. But what about the people operating those lasers? How can a behemoth like the Navy ready its future sailors for the high-tech combat of tomorrow? Believe it or not, with an Oculus Rift.
A lot of the most interesting applications of VR have less to do with gaming, and more to do with perceptions of self. What's it like to see outside of your own subjective experience of body and self?
I remember reading a magazine article twenty years ago that was about virtual sex. And how gadgets and games were going to change the way we knock boots forever. Well, it didn't really happen, but hey, twenty years later and humanity is giving it another shot.
Just when you thought the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset couldn't get any more impressive, enter this demo, which uses scans of real-life models to make ultra realistic humans for your enjoyment.
Elon Musk demonstrates the benefits of an intuitive natural user interface (Leap Motion) for manipulating 3D models of rocket components, the Oculus Rift for stereoscopic 3D visualisation, and 3D printing for rapid prototyping.
Minecraft players seem to have no problem immersing themselves in Mojang's blocky little world with their naked eyes. Add the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset to the mix and things just get crazy.
Remember Omni, the virtual reality/treadmill hybrid that allows you to walk and look around naturally in a game—like Skyrim? This time, Virtuix, the folks behind the tech, are back with footage of the Omni, Team Fortress 2 and the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset running all at once. This is as immersive as you can…
