The Oculus Rift can be used for all sorts of things. Heck, it was only recently that the company announced that they would be co-publishing their first game in the form of EVE: Valkyrie which would in turn make it an exclusive for the headset as well. That being said, if you’re the sort of person who might be more into sports, say rugby for example, Wear the Rose could be an Oculus Rift experience you can look forward to. This is a joint effort by O2 and the England rugby team which aims to provide a 360-degree virtual reality sports experience.
Based on what we can see in the video, the wearer will be asked to participate in all sorts of rugby moves, such as jumping, tackling, and even catching passes from members of the England rugby team. So how long did it take to put all of this together? Well apparently it took 160 hours of filming and 320 hours of development to create the experience. It admittedly looks like a pretty fun experience and you will be able to take part in it all without actually getting hurt! If you have a minute to spare, check out the trailer video above to get an idea of what to expect.
