Video Shows Team Fortress 2 Played With The Oculus Rift While On A Treadmill

We’ve seen a couple of games being run on the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, with Valve’s Team Fortress 2 being one of the games to “officially” support the headset. In any case while the headset is said to offer up a pretty immersive experience, we guess there could always be room for improvement and that’s exactly what one company did when they put an Oculus Rift headset on a gamer and put him on a treadmill! Basically the video was used to show off the company’s Omni treadmill which is basically a circular treadmill, and together with a Kinect sensor, it allowed the game to capture the movements of the gamer and translate that into movement in the game.

They even hooked the gamer up with a gun-like controller which helped to make the experience a bit more “real”, and they also added a circular barrier around the treadmill to prevent him from falling off. Admittedly it looks pretty awesome and could prove to be a good workout too, especially if you play the game long enough and work up a sweat! At the same time it looks like it could be a little dizzying, at least from an outsider’s perspective, but it might be different in person. What do you guys think? Pretty cool, huh?
