Picture of the item

We are looking at purchasing an Occulus Rift for the space. This is a handy headset for all the graphics and vision hackers we have and should be a lot of fun to play with. Plus its also made by John Carmack who is pretty much a legend!

Pledge leader: Oni

From the page:

Oculus Rift is a new virtual reality (VR) headset designed specifically for video games that will change the way you think about gaming forever. With an incredibly wide field of view, high resolution display, and ultra-low latency head tracking, the Rift provides a truly immersive experience that allows you to step inside your favorite game and explore new worlds like never before.
