Tested Takes the Video Game ‘Elite: Dangerous’ for a Spin on the Oculus Rift DK2 Virtual Reality Headset

Norman Chan of Tested recently took the upcoming video game Elite: Dangerous by Frontier Developments for a spin on the Oculus Rift DK2 virtual reality headset. Chan uses a HOTAS setup to zoom to and fro in virtual space for nearly 30 minutes.

Norm flies through the basics of Elite: Dangerous using the Oculus Development Kit 2 and a joystick plus throttle setup at home. Here’s how the space flight simulator integrates head-tracking for its in-cockpit user interface, and why it’s one of the best uses of the Oculus headset so far.
