Perhaps the most exciting thing about the Oculus Rift is that the device is in the hands of thousands of creative human beings intent on doing interesting things with it. This cool little simulation is one of those things. Using Leap Motion Johnathan Selstad has created 'sword' support, meaning that he can attempt to use a 'real' object and use it to interact in a virtual space. Pretty cool.
It looks like fun to use, even in this super basic simulation he's created. Mainly because he's able to use the object to hit other virtual objects using physics calculations. Can't wait until this is implemented in full designed worlds. The Oculus Rift, more than new consoles or new games, is probably the tech I'm currently most excited about. I can't wait until it hits retail and everyone can have access to it.
