Pocket-Lint: Oculus Rift demoed at CES, we try out the beta

Pocket-Lint: Games are always about trying to immerse you into the action, but a new system called Oculus Rift is taking that to new extremes, bringing "virtual reality" even closer to "reality". Remember The Lawnmower Man? It's that. With bells on.

Demoed to pocket-lint at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, the Oculus Rift system is still very much in the early stages of development. It already has backing from a number of big industry gaming names, like John Carmack (Doom, Quake, etc), and immerses you in a game by forcing you to wear what is essentially a pair of high-tech ski goggles. These feature two in-built monitors and sport the processing power to read your head movements and act accordingly. (Oculus Rift, Tech)
