Very Cool Machinima: Demonstration of Second Life Viewed Through Oculus Rift Headset-



This machinima by Vidyadude shows how great Second Life looks when viewed through an Oculus Rift Headset. The 3D visualization will be a major improvement for many users in terms of realism. Developer headsets are available now for $300. The plan is to make consumer versions avaialbe at this price in 2014. I cannot wait to get one.  I think this could be the "killer app" that makes Second Life take off in terms of usership.
