I still haven’t had a chance to really enjoy the Oculus Rift so far, simply due to lack of time. I’ve heard a lot of games already have support for it (can’t wait to try Half-Life 2).
However, the coolest thing I’ve experienced with the Rift so far is a hack developed by Luca Siciliano (aka troffmo5) that puts you inside a Google Street View scene (GitHub repository).
To experience it, you have to run a small piece of code that takes the Rift sensors data and streams it to a WebSocket, and then browse to oculusstreetview.eu.pn
My favorite places so far: Heron Reef (it just started there, didn’t even know you can dive underwater), standing on top of the Eiffel Tower, Times Square, Grand Central, and just outside the tracx office in Tel-Aviv.
