Video game enthusiasts will be interested in hearing about the Oculus Rift System and its amazing ability. The helmet features immersive 3D rendering and low latency, amongst other things.

The Oculus Rift is a headset designed for specific video games that offer high resolution display, head tracking and an immersive experience that no longer is simply a screen, but a fully diagonal view. The Rift creates a high-end virtual reality environment available at a lower-end cost to those that are currently priced at tens of thousands of dollars.

The low-cost materials have made this a viable product for the consumer market; at the present moment, the Rift is available as a prototype kit alongside a fully playable version of DOOM 3. The Oculus Rift may be a new direction for gamers and the future of video gaming.
