Nowadays it seems like everyone with technical skills is producing their own cool Oculus Rift demos, but this demo is one of the most creative I've seen. Using the Oculus and a not-so-comfortable looking harness, the Vaecon team created a Skydiving simulator, and it looks crazy fun. It's tech demos like this that make me wish I had a Rift to play around with.
I can’t see how you would control your character in the simulator and the lack of wind rushing past you would lessen the realism, but a simple box fan could fix that! If you do have an Oculus Rift, please don’t kill yourself trying to hoist your body into a tree. I’m sure the people in the video are at least semi-professional harness-hoisters.
Once the Oculus Rift officially releases it will be fun to see what an even larger audience will be able to create for it. If proliferation of cool demos already circulating the net are any sign, there will be plenty of fun things to do with it.
