Update: Oculus Rift

In Episode 3, Rob and I talked about a virtual reality tech called the Oculus Rift during our KWL segment.  Specifically, we were interested in the potential to use it for virtual field trips… well check out this grandmother who’s virtually taken to Tuscany by her grandson.

Check out the video below to see what she was actually looking at. You’ll have to imagine what it would look like with a pair of Oculus Rift goggles on – unless you already have a pair. If that’s the case, contact us now!

Very cool tech.  I assume that viewing with the goggles would NOT result in the double image that is shown in the video.  Still it would be interesting to go into a classroom and see that all the kids have one of these on their desks.

@aezellatcrec Right, you'd have one image per eye in the goggles.  Notice their viewing angles are slightly different.  This allows the viewer to perceive depth - i.e. the image should look 3D!
