The Oculus Rift had a big presence at IndieCade this year, but one of the VR headset's most interesting uses wasn't being showcased at the official Oculus booth. Enter Project Holodeck, a self-contained virtual reality system created by a team of students. The system employs PlayStation Move for positional tracking, a Razer Hydra for in-game control and an Oculus Rift for the display. All the components are self-contained with a backpack and a helmet, meaning there are no wires to trip you up, allowing you to actually "walk" inside of virtual space.
I took Project Holodeck for a spin, trying my hand at some virtual zombie slaying, and the experience was certainly unique. See it for yourself in this video.
