The Oculus Rift is pretty awesome. Even a charming old lady thinks so as it allowed her to visit the Tuscan countryside without leaving her kitchen. It was only a matter of time, however, before somebody made something a bit more menacing, and the results are hilarious.
Three developers in the span of a few days created a mini-game called Disunion – The Guillotine Simulator. As the name suggests, it’s a first person simulation of having your head chopped off. It only has visual and auditory feedback for now, but the demonstrators make sure to deliver a light karate chop to the neck for an added effect. As expected, the results are hilarious.
It will be interesting to see what developers come up with next on the Oculus Rift. Virtual reality has the potential to finally catch on this year, and short demos like this make me confident that we’ll start seeing some really unique experiences later down the road.
